Frequently Asked Questions

What is LOF date coding?
LOF date coding is the LOF marking on the auto glass that tells when the glass was manufactured. This is a must for original cars which may be judged. Our experts will give you a date code that will coincide with the build date of your car. This date coding is a special order item. Please contact us for a quote. We will need the serial number and date the car was built, a sketch of the current logo is also helpful.

What is the difference between the glass color options?
Original side glasses and back glasses came in the clear and green tint. If you are unsure which color you have in your car you can hold a white piece of paper behind the glass and you will either see the green tint or completely clear. We also offer a custom smoked grey glass which is not original. This is a great look for custom cars and street rods. Windshields come in a solid green tint, green tint with a shade band at the top (tinted & shaded), or also clear. The most popular is the tinted & shaded.

What is the tint percentage on the custom smoke grey glass?
The custom smoke grey side glasses and back glass are approximately 30%. The custom smoke grey windshield is approximately 5%. These numbers represent how much light is taken out when it goes through the glass. The grey tint is in the glass, not a film. All are DOT approved and legal in all states.

Truckline shipments also require a phone number. If one is not provided, your order will be held until one is. Please inspect all shipments immediately.
