My 98 GLS has a crack about 6 inches long right in my line of sight. That's been there at least a year maybe two.I need to get off my butt, grab a set of gauges, and recharge mine. Year 2 without air, but I only drive it about once a week. Hey, it took my 5 years to replace the windshield I cracked .
Now that's something I really have to get done soon before rainy season starts here. The adhesive bonding on the glass to the body has been compromised and leaks copious amounts of water inside the car.
When I was a dumb 20-something, I destroyed the windshield on my TR7. I was trying to pry off the chromed aluminum trim around the windshield with a flat blade screwdriver. Within seconds the windshield was toast. That was beginning of the end for that car.Have you ever broken something, and thought I should stop now.
Well that didn't happen. So I was fixing my headliner, and getting the proper grey rear view and parts installed on the wagon. While getting the very stuck tan mirror off, I scattered my windshield. Well I tried not to let it bother me. Then it escalated extremely quickly and before I knew it, I destroyed my shifter, ash tray, and the center console piece that holds them. 😡
Luckily I have an entire setup to use, but still.
I'm not proud of some of the mistakes and expensive at that I've made in my lifetime but at least I can man up and admit that I made them.
