Thanks!
Wasn't there a bunch of mention they were no longer available?
I was about to pilfer and store one from a parts car.

Are there cars on the road that don't have available windshields? How common is that?

I know people have had a hard time finding windshields for these, and a few other rareish cars.

Never actually heard of impossible to find glass. Expensive as all *blank* yes, but not impossible.

Nitpicking but the XT and the XT6 both used different windshields. From memory the XT6 had a "gold" tint whereas the XT used something else.

Doesn't matter much john. Safelite doesnt have any tinted, and none without the blue band at the top

If you call a windshield company it's possible they would say "we don't have XT6" windshield though? Did you ask for an XT or XT6 glass?

I asked for xt glass John. I guess they don't understand they're identical.
