Windshield replacement

Postby Always Sunny » May 15th, 2018, 11:19 am

I'm looking for recommendations for somewhere in Kelowna (West Kelowna or Winfield is fine too) for a windshield replacement on a late model Jetta. No insurance claim, just cash.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Yup, LeadingEdge!
Using cash is one of your few forms of privacy: use it or lose it. 1984 isn't the only Orwell novel that needs to to made fiction again.

Leading Edge sounds like a good bet! Can anyone tell me if they do tinting as well? I don’t see it on their site. I’d like to do the rear window and back passenger windows at the same time if possible.

Rutland Glass is pretty awesome, they're our go-to for anything glass.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.

Best to just phone them and ask.

I actually wound up booking an appointment with Solar Tech for the tinting. Not surprising, summer is super busy for that, so it made sense to get a head start on planning that. I did have really good recommendations for them.

I only paid my deductible, so I wouldn't know.

Have to ask, did you get the window changed and was it done well.

I've got a older 60s and want a new window. Not sure if I want a young guy to practice with it as there is a lot of chrome around it.

Leading Edge, Dave has been working on the classic cars for over a decade, and learned glass from the guys doing it since the 60's :) :130:
