Smashed Windscreen. Need A New One To Suit 34

Recommended Posts

Someone I know got frustrated with my P plate falling down off my windscreen, and attempted to force it to stay up but smacked my windscreen with there knuckles, now I have a huge crack that starts in my passenger side top (where the P plate sits) down to my rego label (Bottom passenger side)

Can't be fixed as it's a 'spider web crack' not a chip. Is slowly getting larger. Been told it'll take 7-14 days to get one in Bendigo as they don't keep them on hand (unlike the commo's and falcons)

Question is:

1) does any one know someone good and cheapish in the western suburbs (pref St Albans/Sunshine/Cairlea ect) that I can get it done at?

2)Will an R34 take another windscreen? I've heard they'll take a Ford Falcon windscreen...true/false?

Cheers

Shape is different to fords so don't know how they can fit. Also if I'm correct the r34 has the antenna for the radio in the windscreen. So it will cost about $400? Call some wreckers

O'briens has them normally. They also come onsite to fix them for roughly $650 as I recall. So thats remove, new window mould and etc.

I believe the R34 has it's antenna is in the rear windscreen :P

As for replacement, I've gotten mine done in Dandenong, Roy's Windscreen I think, it cost me $220 and it took them less than 30mins.

    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
    • It will work when it works, the problem is what happens when it doesn't work. The failure mode of the FPR hose popping off is bad news if you get into boost. If you tee it off the factory boost gauge instead in most RBs it's just a gauge instead of being used in the ECU. Even in the turbo NEOs the failure mode is not as bad as it would otherwise be, the ECU uses MAFs primarily and the MAP sensor is mostly for transient handling and overboost protection.
    • Yes you are right. Even conservatively one for 10 years, it would last 1000 years. The Alibaba suplier offer a sample for US$100.
