Driving home from the beach this morning, not a car in front or back of me, had to be someone going the other way, karraaaack, nailed me right at the edge of the windshield, spidered 8 inches before I even got to pull over to the side of the road. Son of a ......., by the time I finally got home spread another 8 inches in 2 directions, no fixing that!! Fortunately it didn't hit paint. Called around for new windshields this afternoon and looking at around $600, called 3 places and they were all with in $25 of each other, so I guess that is the going rate in my area. Ok, so question, in only 2100 miles I have had 2 solid rock hits, both on the highways at highway speeds, so do like the old school bug deflectors, the ones you mounted on the leading edge of your hood do any good? Hate the way they look, but man, I sure don't want to be getting a new windshield on the regular, especially at $600 a pop!!!!
