Thanks for the That Glass Place recommendation. They did a great job on my 911. They've sourced a Sekurit windshield and installed it for $700 + tax. I hope this review helps other enthusiasts in the area as well.

I believe the Sekurit is a harder glass and less likely to get pitted.

Just had That Glass Place replace my 964 windshield. My old one had many rock chips and was so sand blasted, I could barely see out of it when the sun or lights were in front of it.

He was thorough and it looks great. Had no rot in the channels, though I did find out whoever replaced it last cut the antenna wire and spliced it instead of running it correctly to the frunk. He fixed that and now I can pick up radio stations. Makes it a little harder to delete the radio now.

Definitely recommended.

Installing the windshield is a piece of cake compared to the rear Targa glass. I just do it myself. It helps if you have 2 additional hands.

The PITA is the get the trim in and not bend it.

Cheers

Sorry for the late reply, That Glass Place came to my house and changed the windshield without any issues at all.
