Glad you got the glass safely. AMD must have quite some insurance coverage. LOL Thanks for the update. You are making good progress! Gary H. > -------Original Message------- > > Did receive the 2nd windshield shipment the other day - intact amazingly. There is some effort is packing - 2" thick dense foam on each side - 3" thick egg-crate shaped foam top/bottom - extra cardboard with 2" thick x 3" wide strips of soft egg-crate shaped foam from and back. Still makes you wonder what AMD's fatality rate must be for shipping glass....... > > Have the new floor-pans all welded in less seatbelt anchor plates. Last night spot welded on the park brake cable guide brkts that came with the main floor-pan. Have threaded anchor plates coming with the seatbelts from SeatBeltPlanet.com. > > Cut out the rear qtr windows myself to get in and clean up the pinch welds prior to having them reset with new rubber seals, when I have the windshield done. > > Inside going to spray the entire floor, new and old including the sheet metal rear wheel wells with U-POL Raptor bed liner coating. It's a urethane you mix and shoot. Turned out real well on the rear seat/cargo area metal, when I tried it out a couple years ago. Has held up well too. It will help with sound deadening/heat/undercoating at a reasonable cost and is easy to apply. Underneath I may use it too, prior to undercoating the new sheet metal. > > Wagons have thin plastic covers over the rear wheel wells. But it is so brittle after 55 years, I am thinking just leave them off and run with the bed coating if it turns out as good. > > > -----Original Message----- > Bummer. > > So do you mean they charged you $35.00 for "the extra mile in packaging" to ship glass in "protective packaging"? > Which consisted of a typical cardboard box and the glass inside wrapped in a thin covering of tarp-like material? > > Thanks, > Gary H. > > > -------Original Message------- > > From: Hall, Ricky L > > > Rather their website.......... > > > > > > From your website: > > > > IMPORTANT GLASS SHIPPING INFORMATION > > > > Due to the fragile nature of glass, in order to assure that you > > receive your product in tact, we have gone the extra mile in > > packaging.
