Looks tacky.......

So I had a local glass company come out and replace my windshield on my prelude and it was around $210 installed and ill I can keep thinking of is how ugly this mold is around my windshield. What do you think?

Re: Looks tacky.......

I think you are being a little picky...in my opinion the new rubber just stands out compared to your paint. Not the cleanest install, but what can you do when you are working on a 20 year old car.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Looks tacky.......

Give the company a call and see. When my windshield was replaced they could not reuse the molding and left it out. I called them to see if they could reset it and they cant do it without removing the windshield. Plus they said if the windshield cracks or breaks during the removal or placing im responsible for the windshield

Re: Looks tacky.......



You can truly complain if there is a whistle and water gets in.

QUICK! Hose the windshield to check for leaks....

Re: Looks tacky.......

I agree with OP. It should be cleaner than that. Safelite did mine, and it came out similar. Mine wasn't as bad as this, but they came out and cleaned up some of the corners and whatnot. Give your company a call!

Re: Looks tacky.......

To tell you the truth, when I look at the pics, all I can notice is your faded red paint job, and your faded orange/tan? side mirrors.

To me that is a bigger eye sore then the rubber.

Re: Looks tacky.......

Paint is more noticeable than the trim. It looks a little wider than it should. But I think you're probably just being over-critical. It doesn't look bad.

Re: Looks tacky.......

At least see what they have, to say about it and how they sound when they are saying it...be wary, Honda still has brand spanking new ones that your shop could've ordered...
