Nice. That's why I don't like going aftermarket with things if I can get reasonably a the wreckers. You know it'll fit like it should.

I really couldn't believe how bad it was compared to stock. Seems like the OEM tint is even darker, and the glass is more clear looking out. Now hopefully all the defrost circuits work : thumbsup:

About half of my circuits weren't working. Just fixed them myself as I didn't want to chage my glass out. Still have a couple that are not working, but will get them when it warms up a bit. It's just the one edge that seems at some point was scraped with something that caused the issue. Not too hard of a fix. Rest of the circuit seems fine. If it was all pretty bad shape, the only way to fix it would have been to replace which would have cost more than the kit I bought did.

Isn't there some kind of conductive paint they make for that?

Yes. Pretty much any auto parts place should have. It's basically a repair kit made for fixing breaks in the lines. Pretty easy to do. The top two and bottom two were the only lines of mine that were working. The middle ones weren't. Couple still not getting proper contact so wil resand again and redo and they should be fine. It's basic thin copper wire or such, so if it gets scratched just right, it will break the connection on that particular wire. Sand lightly with the sandpaper in the kit, tape off either side, or use the template given, and it paints on, reconnecting the line. Have to wait quite a while to properly dry and such, then it's good to go!
