Re: skoolie days

Just be glad the bus has a 4 piece windshield and not the two piece curved version. You'll save a lot of money with the setup your bus has.

Re: skoolie days

Get one of those chip kits or have a pro outfit (any windshield outfit) to fix it before it spreads.

Nick Russell's wife (Ms Terry) of The Gypsy Journal used to do windshield repairs as they traveled from campground to campground. Had her little professional pressure set up and made a few bucks fixing chipped windshields while in various campgrounds. And she fixed any chips in the windshields of their bus and tow'd. I've seen advertised chip repairs between $15 and $25 per chip fairly recently.
