Watch out for laminated glass!!!


Recommended Posts

saw a thread in horror stories about a cracked 1/4 glass.

well, today I did a new dodge crew cab. Laminated door glasses! :dunno

noticed it as I passed the torch along the back edge. I was at a glass shop at the time, and the manager said there are e few new models w/ lami and there are not yet replacement glasses available. look at the tags in the corners to be sure before you get the heat going too much!!!

shouldn't need that much heat on any of the laminated door glasses. Lot of new cars are doing them though.....been posted before with many listed.

shouldn't even need to heat the window. IF a door needs shrink I have been pulling the film off on the top and shrinking more of a large "pocket" with the heat never even getting close to the window. If done right the film will lay down perfect and not need any additional heat inside.

The words laminated and torch just spell disaster.

A torch just have too much concentrated heat compared to heatgun on low with a quick pass if needed IMO
