    Got the glass on Friday, and I thought I posted a review but realized I didn't tap "post" properly, My bad!

    First, the shipping was FAST, communication was AMAZING and Chris is a super cool guy.

    Now, the only way that Chris could package this any better is if he had it hand carried by Marines on Air Force One. It came in a super sturdy wooden box, and packaged perfectly.

    Oh yeah, the glass? It's GORGEOUS. The color is spot on, it's beautifully finished and looks great. Unfortunately the stupid Lincoln got sidelined, so I didn't get to install it last weekend :( Saturday is a Holiday for me but I'll shoot for Sunday. I can't wait to get it in, it's just THAT nice.
  3. Chris cut all my glass for my '39 Ford Sedan. Beautiful work! Fast turn around and shipping. The packaging (crating) is amazing. I recommend him for any of your glass needs.

    Got my windshield and all door glass from Chris and am very satisfied. Easy to work with, packaging was great, quick turn around and the edge work on the glass is fantastic! Highly recommended.

    Chris cut some glass for my Willys station wagon to replace the two piece side windows with one solid, non opening piece. Every thing that guys have said in previous posts is spot on. I think that the glass could be dropped from a low flying airplane, the way he packs it! Quick turn around--and the best part of all is the price.

    The stock arrangement is one fixed, and one sliding window. Guaranteed to leak, and rot out the under-window area. This is why I wanted to go with a single piece on each side If I had bought the glass from any of the Jeep sources, it would have cost more than 3 times as much - PLUS shipping - than Chris's price including shipping--and I know that there is no way the packing would have been as good. What more is there to say? Customer and quality oriented and a great price, instead of the "who needs you" attitude all too common in today's business world.

    I had some concerns about putting some of the glass that the car came with back in, without breaking it--particularly the windshield.
    Now, I dont give a crap if it does break, and I have to buy new from Chris. It's that much of a pleasure to do business with him!

    I wanted to let you all know that I am now doing window parts restoration! I have been having some guys send me their window frames and channels and misc window parts, and I've been restoring them, mounting the glass, and sending them back ready to install!! It's been working well and I've been told I do good work, so I'm adding it to this thread and will start gettin' some feedback on here! I'll try to remember to do before & after pictures on each one & post them!

    I can polish the chrome, repaint, install the glass onto the channels, get new rubber seals, gaskets, the whole 9 yards. PM me for a quote and more information!

    Hey y'all!

    I just got my full set of glass (9 pieces) including some restoration on the vent frames and door/quarter glass mounted on the original rails. (pic #6 up there is my glass)

    From the get go working with Chris has been fantastic, he enthusiastically answered all of my questions and really helped me make the right glass choice. I had been getting quotes from a lot of places, but the customer service I was getting, and the reviews here put him over the top.

    Chris even helped with tips to get the rails off of my existing heavily cracked and de-laminated glass. I sent him the rails and vent windows still in their frames for him to work his magic. The vent frames look amazing. The door and quarter windows are mounted and he cleaned them up as well even though you wont be able to see them.

    Everything arrived in wooden boxes with handles! The packaging, as has already been reported was outstanding. The thing that really struck me when I finally got the windows free of their cocoon was how perfect the edges look. Smooth, rounded, just incredible. The only down side, is my camera is crap and I cant capture how awesome this glass is.

    I can say without a doubt Ill be getting any other glass work done by Chris, I cant say enough good things about the whole experience.

    Extra bonus! Here are a couple of pics of what the vent frames looked like before and after.

    Also After

    I ordered 2 sets of glass from Chris for my 1941 International and 1955 International a few weeks ago and got them this week and they are prefect, the price is awsome, i got both sets shipped for less then one set from another glass vendor, packaging was bomb proof, polished edges are really nice, will be ordering more from Chris once i get going on a few other projects. Thanks agian Chris

    I just opened my 1941 Dodge pickup glass. This stuff is awesome! Bomb proof package and great price. Customer service was above and beyond any I have ever had. Would not go anywhere else for glass.
    Thanks Chris!
  17. Got my glass for 40/41 Ford PU today. Big-time DITTO on the quality of product and service from Chris! I'll be back too. And ... you've got to see the crating to believe it-- too good to throw away. I'm thinking of re-purposing it as a suitcase!!

    Another big thumbs up for Chris! Got the 2 windshield halfs for my '48 Plymouth Coupe the other day and they look great and were superbly packaged. Will definitely go back when I need glass again.
  20. I got my back roll down glass for my 1936 Ford Coupe. As was said, the packing was great, the glass is tempered and has polished edges. This glass made the previous owners ebay purchase look like he bought it from a child that did it. Chis is also awesome to deal with!! I'm tempted to smash my new glass from him just to do business with him again and get a spare crate. Chris, keep your prices fair and you will be the go to guy!!!!
  21. I just got the glass for my shoebox and it looks amazing. As everyone else has said A) the packing job is fantastic. B) the glass looks freakin' perfect. C) Chris is a good guy to deal with. Walked me through making my templates, answered my newbie questions etc.

    All this, shipped in a fancy crate, for less than any local guys I could find quoted. I'll be ordering from Chris again.

    Now I just need to get the car to a stage where I can actually install the glass!

    Chris made some new vent windows for my '53 chevy wagon. He even threw in some glass setting tape so I could install them. Great guy to deal with!

    just got our glass for the 30 coupe...don't know what to add that has already been said...awesome work...edges polished...bomb proof packaging..even had a handle on it so the fed-ex guy could carry it easily...chris called with the tracking info,and had a nice conversation with him..all around great guy
  24. This is the second time I'm attempting to leave positive feedback for Chris. First time I got a message saying "Your message will be posted once the moderators approve it" or something like that. It never appeared. It was all good, I'm not sure why it wouldn't have passed muster. Anyway...

    Chris just cut the glass for my shoebox project. I haven't got the glass in the car yet, but it looks great and is spot-on my templates, so I don't anticipate any problems. Chris has been good to deal with, answered a lot of my dumb questions and stayed right on top of the job. Very much appreciated. I'll post pics once the glass is on the car. Thanks Chris!

    Now hopefully this message with make it past the gate keepers.

    Chris is absolutely the best to work with. His effort to give you the bets product for the best price puts him way above any others in the glass business.
    My Model A truck is looking better.
