    Take the windshield to a plastics fabricator and have them make one 6 inches shorter . I know the one I worked for when I was your age would do it , if they were still around /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I've cut a couple of windsheilds before. Both times succesful, although curved laminated glass is sensitive. I'll certainly give it try but cannot guaranty the score will not run out (glaziers term). Usually glass shops will not guaranty this. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
