    Just went outside and noticed one of my back windows was busted out, next to the slider. Anyone know a good/reputable window repair place around Gilbert?

    Think I've used speedylight or something like that! They'll come to you and take insurance if you have it!

    Apparently you just can't buy the one piece, it comes in sets since it's not one piece, well hopefully next time it breaks, it'll be one of the other two extra pieces I'm keeping, lol

    My insurance is covering most of it, thank god, that was looking like a pretty expensive window to replace.

    You don't really care, do you.
    Safelite does ok work ( I had a shitty windshield install done by them one time, and they even cut my plastic trim right by my oh shit handle ), but they do NOT use the same type of glass that Toyota uses. You'll see more ripples at an angle in your windsheilds, and they will chip and crack 5x easier. The back windows are a little different though, and should be pretty much standard.

    How do you not have full glass coverage on your insurance? I thought that was pretty much standard even with basic coverage?

    AAA tags on with comprehensive. Standard deductible applies.

    Used to be, if the repair could be done without removing the glass, they covered it 100% (epoxy crack repairs), but they stopped paying for those a few years ago, so now if you have a $500 deductible, any glass work is going to cost you $500.

    Now, I'm just wondering if the epoxy and everything will be set before tomorrows meet, would definitely suck to do the table top and break or have my new glass fall out lol

    You don't really care, do you.
    It should be set solid after 24 hours. Leave it where the new window is facing the sun the rest of the day to help it cure faster.

    if it falls out call up the safelite people and tell them it fell out. Just leave out the table top part of the story :)

    Ya, as long as it falls out as the complete rear window I'm good, lol. It's sitting in the sun now, so should be good by tomorrow, we'll see ;)
