Question

Hi All,

there are some deep scratches on the driver side shutter glass (due to a messed up beading) previous owner has locked the key in and "broken in" to the car by removing the shutter beading and unlocking by some means.

i replaced the beading with brand new ones so now they don't scratch the glass anymore but i need to get rid of the one's that are there... where and how can i get it sorted ? pls help... and is there a way that i can do it my self.

i doubt you can DIY this since the scratches are deep...

there are place that can polish out and even fill in but at a cost...you might wanna try kleenpa*k and even Mr.Sylvi's place :)

also there's the option of sourcing a new glass either from the agents or from junkers

Yup.. and this is a DIY thing... :lol:

its not DIY, thats a criminal offence. but i would still do it though if i had full insurance :( previous owner has insured for 3rd party only besides its a two door Daihatsu Mira 2001. i think finding a replacement shutter would be a real challenge.

machang....out of jokes.... why don't you take a shot at Mr. Sylvi's place. Since it's tough for you to source a new glass you might as well give it a shot :)

Where's Mr.Sylvy's plc?

qasid,

If you have deep scratches go in for a new glass or used one from used parts dealer.

Cost of polishing is more than used or new glass as this job can take more than 8 hours.
