Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know I am purchasing the correct glass for my vehicle?
We all want to be confident that we are ordering the correct things we need when shopping online. To ensure the correct fitment when ordering from our website we highly recommend knowing the job number of your model (AKA Model # or Body Style #). This number is located on your trim tag. For most vehicles, your trim tag can be found under the hood on the driver's side of the cowl (firewall) or the door jamb of the vehicle. For most GM models this number will start with the year of your car and will be followed by 4 or 5 numbers and possibly letters. Vehicles manufactured by the American automobile manufacturer Ford will probably be 2 numbers followed by a letter.  We try to include this number on our website for you to shop and order with confidence! If you still have questions or would prefer to speak with someone knowledgable, give us a call, 1-800-828-2212!

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 color options do you offer for auto glass?
We offer clear, original green tint and a custom smoke grey. Original glasses would have been clear or green tint. If you are wanting the original look and 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 for those who want to stray away from the original look. This is a great look for custom cars and street rods.
Windshields are offered in the same tints with and without shade band; Clear, Original Green without the Shade Band, Original Green with the Shade Band (Tinted & Shaded) and Custom Grey with the Shade Band. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer all tints for all models at this time.

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. They are DOT approved and legal in all states.

Is the glass you offer approved by the DOT?
Our glass is completely in accordance with the DOT (department of transportation) and certified.


How is the glass shipped?
Most glass and parts are shipped through FedEx ground. Some products, such as windshields, complete glass packages and some back glasses are sent by truckline freight carriers. Truckline fees cannot be quoted online, however you may submit your order and we will contact you with the shipping charges before any shipping or final payments are made. 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. 

What is the processing time for my order to be shipped?
We have a 1 - 3 business day handling time on in stock items, unless otherwise noted. You will receive an email with your tracking number when your order ships. If an item is out of stock you will be notified via email. 


Do you have the rubber gaskets needed to install the glass offered?
Yes, we offer most of the rubber gaskets for our glass. Look under the category of Weatherstrip-Seals. If you do not see what you need, give us a call- 1-800-828-2212.
