Lets find out who did it, and return the favor to all of their windows.

Nice car Quinn!, been wondering how long you'd be showing up with ver2.0! Crappy about the glass though, people suck. I'd get a piece of G3 glass from a salvage place and do it myself. Cheap and easy. Hope this one has fat, sticky boots on her.......

Major, are those newer 16s on the black sho, or are they 18s? Car looks pretty clean. Dont you interchange front ends almost monthly?
Also, by chance, what is that emblem on your grille? A Yamaha?

Right??? I guess it was TOO COLD for fingerprints. It makes sense, somewhat....but still. There had to have been something.

Nah, I think putting a nail right under the driver side tire, and the rear passenger, I'd be happy. They did the window, and I know it was a PERSON due to those little....ummm....PRY MARKS in the top of the damn door.

Well hopefully in the coming futer ver3.0 will be here, and I can actually have some fun with it. (And store it in a garage, like most project cars should. Or else stuff like this happens. Even if this is my commuter...god...!)
I didn't have a drill to do it, but a friend did. Got a glass for 25, he charged 40 and showed me how to do it. (WTF is with the rivets? I thought normal were bolted. We CONVERTED to bolts)

Ummm, ew??? Sorry to hear that. Its bad enough on the shoe, but... at least you could power wash it.

I'm not sure. But not a thing was stolen, so I'm confused.

Now thats done though, I have a random untinted window. But matter of business is the slight leak of the PowerSteering, a rubber hose, and a belt. All relatively small things. Then its the roof, and finally a paint job, and all while surviving college and saving for the project SHO. Phew...! I'm checking into a fiberglass job though soon, as an "apprentice/intern": make some money in the days off school, have the ability to create my own panels, as well as other MOLDS, like tail lights. *I'm going to be trying to make a crystal undiffused clear lens. Polycarbonate I think they are?*

Heads up on the door glass. IIRC, on the 96 SHO's, and ONLY the 96's, the door glass was riveted in place in the mechanism. I believe the 97 - 99's are much easier to change.

Nope. 97 and newer have the door glass riveted to the regulator/motor.

Just changed the front window on my late built 97. Riveted. Now it's nyloc-nut/bolt'ed in.

Bummer about the window Fury. I don't like people that screw with your property. Tint does good things when people bust your window up...holds on to 90% of the glass shards. Valve stem removal tools are handy if you catch the offender. But that's not the right way to handle things.

Probably some stupid little thing that you'll notice missing sometime down the road.

Been there, done that.

My guess is it was just dumb teenagers breaking windows for the hell of it. Seen it happen. It's not easy to break a car window. When I get the excuse to break one at the junkyard, you really have to find the right tool to break it. Actually threw a window breaker in the tool box haha. I've thrown tons of things at windows and never broken them. Hit them with pry bars, threw a rotor at one once, a bunch of other random car parts as well... Unlucky though man.
