    When some drunk bastig broke my rear rear window out with a rock,
    I first, put the k5 in reverse and pushed his little truck over a ledge,
    second, went down to an autoglass place and bought a new one..

    all together new glass, having the glass tinted, new window sash (i think thats whats it called), and installed cost me right around $200 iirc

    I spent 95 bucks for the new glass that is in BranndonC's power gate that I traded a 12 pack for. went with a truck tail gate instead. I will be fabricating a hatch door for my blazer instead.

    well, i decided to call up a mobile glass company. new rear tinted, new front tint, installed same day at my house for 315. the front has a couple rock chips& scratches right in my line of sight that have been bothering me. worth the money to not have to deal with it. thanks for the offers tho, i really appreciate it. hey branndon, you still having tranny problems?
