    I finally found a mobile auto glass company on edge of Houston, $309 installed. We will see tomorrow afternoon. You would not think it would be that hard!!!!!!! Thanks for the help. I bet I called 15 different companies.

    I guess I just had to call the right company. We live 1 hr N of Houston, and I started by calling the people closest to me. The guy doing the job today is about 1 hr away but he had no trouble locating the windshield!!
    Just out of curiosity I am still wondering if the 4 door and 2 door take same windshield, another comment on here stated 2 different pat numbers. I know the A pillow is generally different in 4 doors , in general.

    The only thing I don`t like about the new glass is the super dark tint at the top

    Yes, i agree i glad you found one. I bought a old stock clear windshield off ebay and the seller shipped it truck and apparently didn`t pack it well and it got broke during shipment.

    I bought a new one up here in Canada about 3 years ago for my 2 door. I think it’s shaded, has dark tinted strip on the top. $400.

    Had a conversation with a guy who had one in Los Angeles (I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada) about a windshield for my 82 base Mirada. He wanted $US395 for the windshield, not an issue. He said that shipping would be $US700 (sounded steep, but I couldn't find a windshield anywhere in Canada). So that was OK. Then he said that he couldn't guaranteed that it would get here intact. That was the show stopper. In essnence, I would be paying almost $US1100 for a broken windshield. Said no thanks. Ended up selling the 1982 Mirada shortly thereafter.

    I think $309 for this windshield installed is about correct for here. I would never give $1000 for a new windshield, the car would go down the road first. I can get a used one but the 9 hr trip after it would be tough!!!
    Still waiting on an appointment for them to install mine.
