    ? about windshield

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the windshield from a 4 door will fit a 2 door?

    Not sure but i think the front of all these cars are the same. just the back half changes.
    altho i dont think new glass is that expensive and would be in perfect order. no micro chips taken out of it already

    ^^^^ yes they are a major pain in the ass to remove. that adhesive sealant they use to basically glue the glass on is a bitch-and-a-half to get through without some piano wire/guitar string/patience/case of beer.....
    save yourself the trouble and just get a new one installed.

    yea I thought the front was the same but I tried a mirror off a 4 door on my 2 door and it wouldn't work... and the windshield that is in the 4 door i picked up is new the guy said he payed $240 for it... Mine is not broke anyways it just has 2 picks in it they are small I just hope that they will pass inspection so I won't need to replace it....

    Round these parts, the Pick-N-Pull has a used windshield shop next door. They harvest windshields from the Pick-N-Pull and charge you very little to put them on your car. I've had really good luck with them.
