Windshiled Replacement
« on: October 15, 2017, 03:11:04 PM »
I have a 1996 National Sea Breeze 129.  Recently had to have the passenger side windshield replaced.  All of the glass ordered and returned by the glass company were between 1/8 & 1/4 inch larger than the original windshield.  The insurance company finally urged them to finish the job after several pieces from various vendors had been returned and the final glass was installed (even though it still did not match the size of the original windshield perfectly) it stress cracked as soon as they backed it out of the garage and so now I have a new windshield with a huge crack top to bottom.  Would like to sell or trade this rig for something a little smaller but can't do anything until I find a clean windshield that fits.  Just starting to research this. Any suggestions?

Surprised you are having that kind of difficulty with the size. Who are you working with?  Maybe you need a different supplier?

The glass co that was doing the installation went through several different vendors.

For only 1/8 inch,, it can be ground down around the perimeter by most glass shops.>>>Dan

Yes, that's what the glass company told me that they did but the one they wound up installing still stress cracked when they moved it.  The vendor (name escapes me at the moment) said they wouldn't stand behind the windshield once it was altered.
