I had mine replaced a few years back cuase of a operator error, I broke it after putting my hood back on correctlly. A local shop had one in stock at the time, I don't believe it has the correct etchings for judging contests.

I takes a bit of a special tool to remove the trim. Then just force a wire through the putty, and drag it all the way around to cut the old one out. Some people just lay on the seat and push with their feet, which breaks the glass, but sometimes gets it out. Then clean the mating surface very clean, and touch up any paint while it is apart. Use a good quality seal and set it back in place. Put it in the sun for a while, then firmly push down on the glass all around.Reinstall the trim and you are done.
I have checked into it and went to my local auto glass place and he said he could order it and have it the next day for about 175.00 installed. If you can get one the next day in Hillsboro, Tx you should be able to get one anywhere
