Re: Chinese made aftermarket windshields

on a side note: picked up a nos gasket from a local guy with a shop. installed it into 6inches of rust less than a year ago. yesterday the gasket looked a bit funny I pushed on it and it moved. closer inspection showed the gasket had split. along the top edge were it grabs the pinch weld.
