These windshields are extremely soft. I took one trip up to the mountains, and its sandblasted beyond belief. The hood and the front bumper didnt fare well either. Less than 500 miles on the car, and it makes me ill to think about it. I will run to Autozone in the morning and get some of this, see if helps with my light sand sparkles.

If they made a OEM Bra for it, I would buy one. I havent seen one. Although I plan on getting it fixed and getting a new windshield. As soon as I can find a place that will install some ClearPlex around here, I will get it done. Currently, the only place that installs ClearPlex is about 200 miles away, and in the same direction I had to go that damaged my windshield in the first place.

I was driving up to Reno. I hit the foothills, and there was a truck in front of me. I was waaaaay behind it. I came around a corner going downhill and there he was. He kissed the white outside line and flung road salt and sand from an earlier snow removal, and I got hammered with 500 miles on my car. I got a few chips in the front bumper and hood and the windshield got sandblasted.

The windshield itself, just got peppered with sand or salt, whatever was used. So its just glittery. There are a few small dings, but its not bad. Its the glitter, sandblasted effect that bugs me. Looking at it with the sun in front of you, it looks like white paint all over the windshield. I got a quote from Safelite down the street for $275. Although my insurance has $0 deductible coverage, and Ive had a few replaced with them over the 14 years Ive been with the insurance company, I dont really want to use them on the brand new car.

I would like an OEM windshield. So I will see what the cost comparison is. Looking at GM Parts direct, its about the same price as a Safelite, and I can guarantee I will get the Acoustic Sound Deadened OEM one.
