Icon10 New Windshield FTW!!!! (PICS)

Ok so i did a little research today and it looks like the states of FL, SC, and KY have this little law about FREE windshield replacement if you have comprehensive or collision coverage. thats right! if its damaged you DO NOT have to pay your deductible Your insurance company will deem whether or not the damage requires replacement or repair. Mine is deemed replacement b/c the crack on the bottom literally goes all the way from left to right.

Anyways, when they ask for a date the damage occurred, make sure you tell them a date that was during your current insurance period of coverage. I had a slight hick-up when the date i told them just happened to be the day before my current policy was changed. long story short i have to wait an extra day for them to re-activate the old policy to make sure i had the right coverage.

so when i get back in town in like 4-5 days i am hoping to have some nice pics up.

P.S. I gotta give some credit to Oem Kaos for this one b/c i got stupid jealous of his new windshield. I started looking for loopholes and sure enough i found one. thanks Kaos!

EDIT: Alright everybody. As promised:

Breaking the seal







Ok this just looked weird

New one



Final outcome!

Re: New Windshield FTW!!!!

Haha - no problem homeskillet! But I got a feeling once I see your car rocking it's new windshield I'll be getting jealous...lol

I have washed my windshield with Invisible Glass and fine grade steel wool followed up by newspaper every other day since I got it without missing a day, and it is just ridiculous how much of a difference it is from my old windshield..

Being able to see while driving FTMFW!!!!

Re: New Windshield FTW!!!!

Alright everyone, here's the new windshield. It is all good except for the fact that the guy said he can tell the car has been repainted

He said it was done very well. I'd hope since the original owner was a mechanic AT Honda. He could tell b/c of how the original windshield seal had 'lumps' in it. That was a little disappointing considering it has a clean carfax report. There is no evidence of any previous wreck, and it was garage kept...makes me wonder why it has been repainted? Maybe it had paint damage or something stupid that i dont need to worry about.

anyhow, see pics above!

Lookin good!!! New windshields FTMFW!!!

As for the paint job, if the guy was a Honda tech I'm sure he wanted his car looking sharp at all times and it might have started fading on the paint and he had it re painted, If it's a clean carfax then I'm sure you have nothing to worry about!
