The price of the mirror glass I ordered was less than 1/2 that of the dealer's, and that included shipping and the adhesive!
thanks. We got it. It's great. We will order again, when we need
Thank you for having mirror glass available. I was really sweating how to put good glass in my freshly rebuilt mirrors, just out of curiosity I looked up “replacement rear view mirrors” and you guys popped up. A huge problem solved.

I got the replacement mirror in the mail when I got home from work yesterday. I put it on last night, and it is a perfect fit.
What a great idea for a company. I can't tell you how many people I know who have broken their mirrors and had to replace the entire unit, when only the glass was damaged.
I've told everyone I know about your company. Hope you get some business out of that.

Just wanted to thank you for the advise. It worked like a charm. A little heat and the heating element came off with no problem. The glass fit perfect.
Thanks, Larry Melbourne FL

Dear Solaraguy users.
My name is Ray Albrecht President CEO of Hometown Glass Corporation located in washingtonville ny. A Solara car owner sent me the following letter below, inquiring about a broken windshield on his solara and those broken by many users. I have been in the business of auto glass replacement glass for 25 years. So I think I can answer some of the concerns of you owners. The Glass put into the Solara is made OEM by a company called AP TECH. This is a USA manufactured windshield, and by quality standards, one of the best in the industry.
As year go by, I find that there are many year make and model cars and trucks that are high volume windshield replacement. Some of which included the old ford Taurus, ford Explorer, Toyota Camry, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Wrangler, to name a few. There is a good reason for this and it is not due to the quality of the glass.
In many situations it is due to the aerodynamics of the wind flow going into the car or truck. Some models, example the Chevy Cameron, the wind flow of the car blows over the top of the roof, thus when a rock is bouncing off the road, the car will at times send the rock flying over the roof rather than hitting the windshield. It is amazing that a rock no bigger than 1/8 of an inch large and a car doing 65mph, colliding, will cause a stone bruise on the windshield. That bruise can cause the windshield somewhere down the road, a month, 6 month or never break the outside of the glass.
A windshield is two pieces of glass with a plastic lamination in the middle. It is called safety Laminate. It serves two purposes. One, to redirect any impact, stone, brick, debris from coming into the car, and will keep you alive when you have a front impact hit when the airbags go off, and is used as a cushion for the airbag when deployed. When a small bruise is created, it is a weak spot on the windshield. Any possible expansion (windshield defroster in the winter, and heat of the summer) or contraction (the cold of winter) will cause this bruise to snap. Thus the outer piece of glass brakes.
To get to the point about the Solaria in general, I have found that of all the cars made, USA and Foreign, that it is not a high breakage windshield. I would put this windshield made from 2004-up as an average replacement. I would put in 8 Toyota Camry windshields, which I consider high breakage, to 1 Solaria windshield. However, here is my option of this car. I love the convertibles. I own a Sebring and would consider the convertibles as my next option. One thing I would suggest on lowering the breakage of this windshield is to put a wind guard in the front grill, thus the rocks will hit the guard saving a windshield. Also, boys, try to keep the speed limit under 85 :)
Hope this answered any of your questions.

In Feb. I ordered a piece of glass for my pellet stove. I sent a template to Internet Glass Network because the piece of glass I needed was an odd shape. Within 4 days I received the glass but it was not the correct cut. I emailed the company (Ray Albrecht) telling him my problem and wanted to return the glass for the correct one. A few minutes later the mail came and I received the correct glass for my stove. Ray had already discovered the problem and corrected it immediately. He replied to my email promptly acknowledging there was a mistake and the new glass was on the way. I had already received it. The prices were the best I could find and the service outstanding. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Sue Barrow - California
Thanks again for the excellent service. I will recommend your
company to everyone I know who needs glass.

Thanks so much, Ken Harris.Vancouver, WA
Invoice looks fine.. I should have
capitalized MA but its not important.
Thank you for the phone call and the heads up about the Chevy mirrors. I followed your instructions with hair dryer and putty knife and it took great patience to remove the glass but the deed is done.
Bruce Orange, ma

The glass I received fit perfect, no problems
