weld splatter sticks to glass. You can run your hands down the outside surface and feel it for sure from doing the rear fender mounts. I know it's there. But inside is the kicker... How's it affect the inside?

You should feel the rear window in my toyota! LOL

I weld short sleeved, sandals and shorts all the time. You all see it... If it's hot enough to melt thru glass and affect the inside surface am I superman and I just don't know it?

Wanted: piece of glass or entire vehicle with good glass for welding splatter test. Glass may or may not be in good shape when you get it back.

We know that you are Superman! Anybody that gets hit with a grinder and doesn't even flinch needs to attempt to leap a tall building in a single bound!

I think that they put the tint on the outside of the vehicle to peel the clear film off before they put it on the inside.

A grinder will pit glass heavily with the sparks. If that door was open during grinding, that may be the issue. I destroyed a windshield on a dart by using a knot cup brush on the hood. It was just flinging paint, so I can imagine what tiny metal flakes would do...

I can push the bubbles around, can't feel any spec of anything or see anything. Honestly... I'll probably go back, if they can't do anything about it. I may just eat the cash and pull the tint back off.


I won't deny one bit the exterior of the glass is pitted. The interior though, I sure don't feel anything...


How's this for my argument... I can push the bubble an inch away and where it was is perfect now. I can probably sit there if I want and spend who knows how long trying to push the bubbles out.

I'll say it again... I can't see or feel any imperfection on the inside of the glass where the bubbles are and now I can actually move them around if I want since it's warmed up and got a bit softer.

If you can push the bubbles around, I would take it back. Even if they put the tint on the outside to peel the clear film, it shouldn't make a difference.

Im assuming you got the explorer tinted? If the guy messed up then you should just take it back and complain a bit.

Yes, the expo... Won't have time to take it back till next week. Actually, that's a lie, depending how thursday morning goes possible I can swing by there late thursday morning now that I think about it.

Gotta run across town, get a truck and trailer, back to my house, somehow load up the expo, take it to dispose of, then get back and drop off truck and trailer. I don't have to be to the airport till mid afternoon so if everything goes smooth with the expo disposal then hopefully I'll have time.

anybody see a problem here? My new (1977 part number) master cylinder on the left. My supposedly "OEM" proportioning valve on the right.


Regardless of fitting size, everything on my truck is plumbed with 3/16 brake lines.

This POS prop valve is flared for 1/4" lines.

And get this, its note ven like i just ordered the wrong part. The lines that go from the PC to the PV come as part of the kit. The lines they supplied are 3/16 lines.....so they mate and seal to the MC but there is no way a 3/16 line will seal correctly on that flare inside the prop valve. I'm fired up.

I am returning the BS kit, and ordering a wilwood adjustable prop valve for the same price as this no-name crap. I'll have to make more custom lines, but whatever. its made for 3/16 lines and it's adjustable. I can get my rear brakes where ever i need them.

Where can I find a proportioning valve that can completely shut off the rear brakes? Nevermind WHY I want it.
