    Always wondered if there was various grades of glass ... this windshield looks like it's been sandblasted and chips pretty easy.

    My all time best was on my '87 K5. I was driving it all over Houston every day as a field service engineer for a computer company. There was lots of construction going on, everywhere I went. I managed to get 13 stars in 1 year. I refused to change the windshield until it was time for an inspection! [​IMG] One of the stars was actually a huge smash. A rock at least as big as a golf ball got kicked up on the other side of the freeway and smacked my windshield so hard that it pulverized about a 1-inch circle and had concentric rings around it to about 4 inches in diameter. Hit right in the center of the passenger side and nearly scared my mom to death since she was sitting in that seat.

    I used to have a truck that had the friggen North star on the passenger's side. HUGE!

    Then, I always had lines on other trucks. My very first truck I've ever had and the blazer I own now has good glass, so now, I don't know what to do being able to see out the window and all. [​IMG]
