Well to make a long story short, I successfully removed all the glass form the hard top, went to remove the windshield and "crack" :mad:. Who are you using for 40 glass? I won't even try to get a stock replacement.. Is anyone getting glass cut locally for their 40??

Thanks, Brian

Speedy glass, where a lot of the guys used to go (Wadsworth and Quicey) is no linger doing it. The Commerce City one at Quebec and about 54th has a cutting table now, but the price went up a lot...now about 220.

There is a small glass shop just wesdt of Kipling on 38th, south side (I think called Acorn) that has a table and wanted to cut me a piece and install it for 145 about one and a half years ago. They might be worth a try. I havn't replaced mine yet, but it is on my list.

Brian, I've used John at JCA Glass. Mobile service out of Littleton (303) 912-2125. He cut one for my 69 40 from a light green tinted glass. I might also have an interest in one for my 40 if it involves a larger piece that might yield 2 windowshields. LMK.

I used Elite (or maybe Safelite, I think they're affiliated now anyway?) in Commerce City on Quebec last year. I brought in the frame and I think it was somewhere around $130.

Did you call any other Toyota Dealers? You might try Boulder Toyota and mention RS. Or you can always try Cruiser Dan at American Toyota (may be Larry Miller Toyota now) in Albuquerque.

Cool, I think Elite is Safelite at least over at Holly and County Line.. $130.00 is great also...

So, I got the frame with glass back in it (Thanks Scott and Tim @ Safelite), these guys did a great job and faster than I thought. I did take in my windshield and they are keeping it for a pattern (1975). They said that they would honor the $140.00 price to any RS members that need a windshield cut, to be safe, if you have your old glass (other than a 1975 size) be sure to take it in with you.. I think they will even do it for that price if you drive it in.. By the way, do not just call the Safelite number in the Google search or yellow pages, you may end up talking to someone at some call center and they will shuffle you around based on your zip code. Tell them that you need to talk to either Tim or Scott, they are the managers..

It has gone up that much? I paid 67.00 from Toyota Dallas when I did my 45. Installed it myself in about 20 mins.
