** COVID-19 NOTICE ** We've had a lot of people asking and the answer is YES, we are still open and processing quarter windows! Send yours now!
We have designed a remanufacturing service for your 1987-93 Ford Mustang coupe quarter windows! Price includes glass polishing and installation kit!
Here's the process:
1. You ship us your existing windows (see directions below). It doesn't matter what condition they are in, as long as you are satisfied with the way the glass itself looks. Note: You must remove any window tint, window tint adhesive and butyl (black gooey adhesive used for window installation) before you send your windows in, otherwise there is an additional charge of $50 per pair for tint (this includes the adhesive or fee will apply) and $50 per pair for butyl.
2. Upon receipt we will snap some photos that will include your name written on the glass as well as marks indicating any existing blemishes, email them to you with confirmation of receipt, and collect payment once we have verified that they are eligible for the remanufacturing service.
3. We then strip them down to the glass, completely removing all existing rubber from the front and back (see pictures), polish the glass which removes all water spots/mineral deposit and surface scratches (but not scratches deep enough to catch your fingernail on) and then add new rubber and replace studs if needed.
4. We will ship them back to you fully insured with a tracking number. Included in your package is an installation kit with butyl and brand new self-sealing nuts. The turn-around time from the time of payment to the time that we ship them back is an estimated 5-6 weeks. We can not guarantee a delivery date. Return shipping is free within the 48 contiguous states, all others will be charged additional shipping depending on destination.
What makes our service superior to our competitors? Other services try to refinish the existing 30 year-old material using high-build primer, body filler or epoxy rubber and that's only if the windows have enough material to refinish. These refinishing materials are inferior because they could crack or peel off. This method is like putting vinyl siding over old wood, it doesn't actually fix the problem. The process itself is also flawed because that method requires hand-sanding and each window is basically custom-crafted and no two are identical. Our service completely strips all of the existing material away, exposing just the bare, original glass. We then add all new rubber, rubber which will last longer and HAS a higher UV resistance than the original due to newer technology. We also have the capability to replace missing or broken studs, something that these other services can't offer. Finally, through a proprietary method involving New Old Stock coupe quarter glass, we ensure that each window molding that we produce is identical.

Helpful tips: REMOVE ANY WINDOW TINT, WINDOW TINT ADHESIVE AND BUTYL PRIOR TO SHIPMENT OR YOU WILL INCUR ADDITIONAL COSTS (please see above in the process section). You may ship them by any service you prefer, but if you are on the East Coast check the Priority Mail rates through USPS.com as they may be cheaper than other services. If you are on the West Coast you'll probably want to stick with shipping companies like UPS or FedEx. We suggest that you pack the packages to the insurance specification of your carrier and then insure your package for the value of replacement windows that do not have a core ($1100). Pack them with the front of the glasses facing each other so that you do not have the studs facing the other glass. If your package gets damaged in transit, we will contact you and you will need to file a claim with your carrier. The approximate size of the box that you are looking for is 26x20x8 with plenty of packing material.
**ATTENTION HATCHBACK OWNERS** We are currently tooling up to offer this service for the hatchback windows! We expect to have it available by the end of 2020. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR HATCH WINDOWS UNTIL WE ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE READY FOR THEM, they will be returned to you at your expense.
