OOOH that wire mesh...<quoted text>
The back glass was damaged too. It was held together by a tint film I think. I was able to get it out by cutting the seal and pushing it. The windshield seal was much stronger. It was taking a long time and a lot of effort to cut the seal out, so I decided to beat the shit out of it. Once I got a hole in the middle of the windshield, I was able to start peeling it out from the middle.
My dad used to have a ton and a half chevy truck with a laminated back glass panel, but it had a wire mesh between the glass layers.
One thing I can recommend is to NEVER try punching through it.
I did that once, my fist went through the glass, but not my thumb. I severed the nerves and now have no feeling on part of my thumb. Hurt like a bitch. Didn't bleed too much, though. Even though I could see the bone.
IANS, can you explain that?
