Windshield Do I have to go to NAC?
A rock chip is no chip anymore :-( It started a line that is about 3 inches long now.
Ours is 2003 Grand Villa. It has a bigger windshield than the pre 2000 Grand Villas. If it was the Bus style, I would imagine I can go to any place but, I wonder I...

Sounds like a rock chip immediate fix with a windshield repair kit may have kept the pit from being a line that keeps on giving. Good idea to carry the kit.

Murphy's law:  If you get it replaced the new one will attract a rock and another repair needed; let it go and it doesn't attract another rock.  At least that is my experience, been driving now for about 3 years with a crack in the curved part of...

Yes, not rocket science. An experienced glass person can install on anything. I did a left side install on our 4107. Just not a big deal but did take a little time as it was my first really big windshield. Glass was $110 out of Mexico.
