I've got a project I'm working on and am looking for a vehicle backglass (rear window) that is in good condition and removed from the vehicle.

It doesn't matter if it has defroster lines or not, just as long as the glass isn't cracked or scratched up real bad.

Doesn't matter what vehicle it came from as long as it's from a passenger car. Preferably something similar to a Jetta --- just an average ordinary every day vehicle.
Nothing with drastic curves to it.

Would be great if someone close by has something just laying around taking up space. I don't want to have it shipped to me, I will come get it. Free is best, but I might be able to pay a fair price for it.

I am in Fort Atkinson, WI 53538. I might be willing to travel 100 miles tops to get one.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info, unfortunately a Fiero backglass won't work for my project since it's flat and too narrow.... and I really suck at removing windshields and backglass windows myself (always end up cracking them).

Something along the lines of a Jetta, Malibu, Cavalier, Corolla.... that style (medium sized backglass with some curve).

This is going to be used as an instructional model and eventually end up as a display piece that showcases the highest grade of automotive Ceramic window film we carry.

Maybe some other forum members can snatch up some parts on the vehicles you mentioned though

I was going to suggest going to a pick a part and pulling a rear window from a full size truck. They are easy to get out without breaking for the most part. But then I read the part about the slight curve .

Wish I could help, but alas I don't keep extra back windows hanging around in my garage .

Yeah, truck backglass windows won't work either. Too bad, they seem to be everywhere for cheap or free. Maybe I'm being picky but I just have a vision in my head what it should look like when the project is finished and I just don't think a narrow flat window will have the "pop" and appeal that a passenger car backglass will have.

There's one in Iowa on Ebay for $45. Would be perfect... as long as it gets out of the car unbroken, and from the picture he has it's still in the car. I sent him a message and will see what he says. Otherwise I'm looking all over Craigslist too.

I'm in no huge hurry, the sooner the better, but it doesn't have to be right now. If anybody sees anything that I can come pick up (within 100 miles or so) Please think of me!

Backglass is tempered glass and can't be cut right?
