Guys, when I get a chance I'll give you some cleaner. There is one that I use  for auto glass & another I use for mirrors, shower screens and splash backs.

Good time to reiterate what a champion this bloke is. Follow up is the key which , considering s lives 2 states away, is what really impressed me. Too many businesses these days are nice as pie until they have your hard earned $,  then its move on.
Not swannie, follow up was first class when I had my cruiser screen replaced thru 1 of his branches. Awesome :cup: :cup: :cup:

Mate, I can sort glass out for you anywhere in Australia. Send me a pm of what you need, where you are and some contact details and I'll sort it at a better price than you will find anywhere.

I always felt that broken windscreens was a bit of a pane to be honest.

Big thumbs up again for a great bloke,

I had a bit of a sticky spot at work and needed a second opinion on something. Not only did swannie answer my question but went above and beyond to make sure I got out of a tough spot.

Big BIG thanks mate!

Swannie, I need an installer. One who is not scared to work on old Shit. ;D

I need the rear screen removed from a 50's yank car, moulding retainer clips refitted to recess and reinstalled with mouldings. Everyone I've contacted are either scared or its too hard.

I can get a new seal from the states, so more than happy to sacrifice the current seal to save the glass. Can't get a new glass real easy though.

Any of your branches have an installer that is good with old crap? Happy to pay for travel from Brisbane. I'm only an hour from there.


Shane.

Ps. There's no hurry. Moulding came off 2 years ago.

Ok, I have a confession to make. I bought a Peugeot 308. For my wife, about 3 years ago. Dumb ba$tard.

Le Pug copped a rock in the guts of the windscreen this week. Apparently I overlooked this trivial piece of cover on the insurance policy. See - I told you I was dumb.

OEM quote for Le Real Thing...$2K. I didn't ask if that was Euros or AUD. Enter Dr Swannie with his bag of tricks. Lined me up an aftermarket screen for a fraction of the price. Happy days.

Viva Le Swannie! :cheers: :cheers:
