Wtf Windshield + Sunroof
« on: 03:43:22 PM / 13-Oct-06 »
Well, I went to pick up my new S12, and everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong. After loading it up (Which was a 3 hour ordeal), I climbed out the sunroof and tried to close it with one hand from the outside. Needless to say, I obviously did it wrong, seeing that if flew out and smashed my front windshield (from the inside?). Anyway, being a retard aside, I need a new windshield and a sunroof from a hatchback. If you have either or both anywhere in B.C. or Alberta, I can pick it up myself, but if you have one anywhere else in Canada, let me know where you are and I'll see if my old man can pick it up for me. Anyway, thanks all.

You should be able to find the sun roof & windshield at your local junk yards. The sun roof should be relatively easy. The windshield is another matter. Even if you find an intact windshield, I was told it's very difficult to get it out of a car w/o damaging it.

Problem is, I live in a shitty town in the middle of nowhere, and the nearest decent junkyard that may have a 200SX is about 400KM away, so it's not really possible. Anyway, I got a sunroof from Premo, all I need is a windshield now. I'd get a new one, but I was quoted $450CDN which is a bit too much. I asked for a price at a junkyard, to see how much they can get it to me for, so if it's a decent price, I may pick it up. Anyway, if anyone has a 84-86 Parts car with a decent window in B.C. and will consider selling it (the window that is), let me know and I'll see what I can do about getting it... somehow.

Yeah, I'm going to Vancouver on wednesday, so I'm gonna see what I can find. If I can get it for cheap, i'll buy it, but otherwise I'm waiting till I get the car running.

if your deal with premo falls through, I've got a moon roof as well.  

no luck with the windshield though.  The one I've got is cracked badly.

I already pretty much bought Premo's... just waiting for a shipping quote. Too bad though, if you let me know sooner, the money saved on the sunroof would pay for my trip going there to pick up an engine... maybe. Well, if I decide to go down there in the next few weeks, I'll drop by and pick it up as well, with my shitty luck, the one I get is probably gonna get broken somewhere down the line.
