Crack from top L side to bottom L side after washing on a hot day for a car show!  I don't think I can do this myself, I wouldn't know where to start.  Will the windshield need to have specific dates, or codes on it to be "legit"?  Is that even something I should consider?  Worried about the price too, so if anyone has had it done, any details would be appreciated!

By the way, the car has been garaged entire life, seals and moldings all look great... does that make a difference?

You guys and gals are great! Thanks!

Unless you plan on having the car judged at an NCRS (?) event or something similar where they check every little detail for originality I wouldn't spend the additional money. Local glass shop should be able to replace it.
BTW, I love my '78 L-82 4 speed. Just never get tried of jumping in and going for a ride.Thumbs Up
