The windshield was zapped on Sunday, I called insurance agent on Monday, repair man was here first thing on Tuesday and the job is COMPLETE! Yay!
The best part is that the top of the new windshield is tinted a fine shade of blue. We didn't have that in the damaged one.
The cost of the replacement windshield was less than the deductible. If it had been a repair, the insurance charges would have been wavered. It was not repairable.
We are not to drive it for one hour and not to wash the car for a week. Yes! We can deal with that!
