    A Duster windshield is quite a bit different, both in the shape and dimensions.

    FYI - I used Safeflite and was very impressed with them.

    He did the repair in my garage and took his time, to the extent he treated the car like it was his. I would rate them 10/10.

    I had SafeLite do mine and they sent an older gentleman from a city an hour away to do the job. He said they probably were scared to have a younger guy do it that had no experience with that type of windshield installation.

    The replacement of an F-body windshield and a newer car windshield are the same (glued in) except trim removal and that's probably where the younger guys would run into trouble since clip on trim hasn't been used for a long time now for the most part.
