Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

I haven't seen repro glass available for our cars, so junkyard. Try to find a donor car as close to the same year as possible. Technically the glass from an early car would probably interchange but some of the random hardware in the door changed over the years.

Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

Only 88 bucks for a side window!
I wonder if its OEM or china glass?

No matter because all auto glass has to meet NHTSA
safety specs.

Pick a part yard $20 bucks...........

Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

I haven't seen a 90 to 92 (mine is a 92) in a pick a part yard in Colorado, Washington or Oregon (all places I frequent) with good glass in over a year.

My concern with the ones I listed is are they reputable. Their websites don't have much info on their companies.

Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

Thanks for the info but it is not all that clear to me that they (Rick's) have the correct glass or that they have it for both sides. Looking for local pickup anyway to avoid shipping costs.

Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

Don't get me wrong, I buy a lot from Rick's Camaros. Thought I was going to get lucky this past weekend as I found a 91 (finally) in a pull a part yard. Unfortunately, both door glasses were badly scratched.

Here is what I have found with the websites I mention above:

They advertise glass from the major OEM manufacturers, good but if you can't reach them or confirm they are reputable it makes you wonder if you should order from them.

www.autoglass.net -- Not responsive. No main office location advertised.

www.autoglass-shop.com/diy-auto-glass-parts.html -- Not responsive to email or phone. Quote they sent didn't have any price on it. No main office location advertised.

www.glass2go.com/ -- Only list newer car glass.

Headed to Safelite today to see if they will sell glass only.

Re: Door Glass -- 92 Camaro

Try to stick with door glass from the same 'vintage',...... there are minor changes to the hardware from early compared to late Thirdgen door glass. ( 87 door glass / it's hardware is not the same as 92 )
