I was over at Specialty on the weekend, and a customer's 510 was in there. The back window rubber, at the bottom corner radius's were all very cracked. It was the cheap after market stuff, and had only been in service for a couple of years. Not very good that's for sure.

Paul collected a rock in the windshield at Mission today - he'll need a new piece of glass as well- cracked right up the middle! :|

I have not heard anything yet. I figure he will phone me when they are in. I can call him at the end of this week, just see if he has any update for us.

GOOD NEWS!!!!

Our windshields are in, got the call this afternoon. I am really busy this week, so I will pick them up next week.
I will pay for the whole lot, then COD for the balance, when you pick them up from me. They will be at my work, so hopefully that works for everybody. I don't want to move them anymore than I have to.

I will post up when they are in my possesion.
