That's for sure! MidFifty sells theirs for $88.50.

I called my local glass shop and was surprised how much it was. It wasn't $150 but it was a lot more than $88. So I decided to keep my old back glass. It has the FoMoCo logo but is cloudy at the bottom. My body man says it gives the truck character.

That glass with character is kind of what I am looking for.

If you have no problem cutting your own glass and have a pattern you could likely get a piece of glass from a truck at a wreckers then cut your own...

I would be interested in that. I don't know anything about cutting auto glass but would sure give it a try.

Thanks for the offer, I have my broken glass for a template. Do you know when auto makers stopped using the laminated glass that can be cut?

Can't really give you an answer on that, I believe all the side and rear glass is tempered now. I'm not even sure what it would be like to cut tempered glass..

You don't cut it, John. It's tempered after being cut to size.

Just like in the movies.

Laminate glass is a PITA to cut (as is old window glass) . I never tried it but, a glass guy told me that you have to score both sides, then "snap" it and use a utility knife to cut th plastic.

I've seen laminate glass cut and like you say, scored on both sides but he poured lighter fluid on the score line after it was snapped and put a match to it...

This was done at the one mine I worked at , the guy was good at cutting glass but he replaced a lot of the glass on all the equipment there..
