In Hawaii?

Nevermind, your car is an Elco.... Malibu glass is not being reproduced by anyone that I have found as of right now. I've called all the big glass makers, pilkington, Safelite or a few others. I've called all the Monte/Malibu sites and OPG, Classic industries etc, etc... Not offered is all they say.

Honestly think he shot high on the rough quote..then come in 10-20 hours under... Make for happy customer.. at least I would.. under promise over Deliver mentality..

Making this from scratch will be time consuming

DM me a bigger photo of the area I think I could get a piece off another car for you (would be shipped from Canada)
I'm about to rip apart a perfectly good 2 door Malibu next week for my car so let me know

Iirc sedan and wagons had different rear doors

I'll see if I can cut one out that's good enough, no sense in cutting out something already trashed but I know where about 4-5 g body's are so ill cut it then just pay the shipping and you can have it.

Works for me.. even at worse..something that is alot closer to completely would be easier to duplicate
