Back home:

Mission accomplished...

Vehicle sprayed successfully.

Going to let it sit so the paint can fully cure and gas off and release all solvents, then it's time to block sand the clear and polish.

After the laborious job of polishing, it's time to reinstall the glass, interior, bumpers and trim.....

Side shot to show the countless hours in clearcoat sanding and polishing.

Nope...

Called my glass guy at Speedy Auto Glass here in Canada. He had it brought in the day after he took the front and back glass out. The old windshield was pitted with a couple bigger star cracks.

Only problem for him is that it was sitting in his store inventory since October 2010! He was a happy guy the day I was finally ready to install!

I'm sure there is a ton around. He mentioned to me that he recently sourced a windshield for 1954 Rolls Royce and another non-run of the mill vehicle....
