Icon14 New Glass!!

Got my front windshield replaced this morning!! YAY!!!

The windshield on there was the original windshield from 1997, so it was cracked and pitted and just overall, not in the best of shape. And with full coverage, why not go for a brand new windshield free of charge

I also put my new BB Squad sticker on, and I like the position and angle ALOT better then the last time I put one on, it turned out reeeaaal nice!

Have a look!!

Front Windshield off


The Workshop aka The Garage...lol


BB Squad for LIFE!!

I actually had a glass company come out, but when we removed the front windshield, it wasn't all that hard because he had a tool with a flat edge that we jammed into the space between the windshield and it acted like a jackhammer and peeled it off. Then we took a razor blade tool and cut the black plastic off of the old window, laid down some black adhesive glue. put the new window on and then glued the black plastic stuff back down, taped her off, and now she sits until 11 pm tonight until I leave for work!

It only took about an hour to get it all done

Windshield was totally free homes, hence the meaning "FULL COVERAGE" on insurance claims

ever realize, that any thing OEM for a prelude isnt cheap. I got backed in to in a parking lot. Minor fix, i fixed it for 800 bucks the insurance compay gave me $2300. Lets say i went shopping- CF hood, Clutch, Flywheel, and some misc things! But i bet you can only get OEM glass and is all of 1g for it.

I replaced the glass because it was the original 1997 glass from the factory, it was pitted horribly and there were three cracks in the windshield. Only one was bigger then a half dollar, the other two were nickel size, and one of those two still had the rock embedded in the crack IN the windshield!

I figured I have full coverage for two more years, why the hell not!

Got my Preludezone stickers in the mail Friday and I finally got around to washing the car today, but my brother's Graduation Party was today and I didn't get a chance to take pics during the day, so they are kinda iffy in quality, sorry..






I really like this picture for some reason, it turned out real cool I think...


Thanks for looking!

I always hated having key chains and stuff, but the Lanyard is real nice too, so it's all definitely worth the money!

You wanna know the best game to play with a cat or kitten, preferably a kitten, it is WAY more fun -

Hold their head underneath the water in the bathtub until the last bubble pops, and listen for a scream coming out of the bubble when it pops!

lmao

^geez man, that is morbid!

I had to replace the 'ol windshield as well. Looked like some owner had used something metal to scrape it... and then a ricocheting bb put a nice chip in it... got tired of being blinded when driving into the sun because of all the scratches.... paid about 200 replaced.
