What Is Back Glass? by:Martine Jones
The back glass is that which covers the rear windshield, often also mounted with the defrost system to maintain driver visibility. This defrost system is one of the most important parts of the back glass because it is usually impossible to see through if the ice has already formed on the windshield. The defrost mode should already be running upon first starting the car and before the car moves. Just don't automatically put the ventilation fans on high speed when defrost mode is selected.
Nowadays, the back glass has become more creative with artistic designs to it. Some companies hire artists to improve vehicle graphics. This relatively new concept of transparent window graphics inspires impressive and colorful images on the entire back glass of cars. One such artist is Jeff Wilkie whose collections include seascapes, marine life images and other wildlife portraits. His work has then transcended from greeting cards, t-shirts and puzzles to rear windshields. Other back glass art features sports, personal expressions, military and camouflage illustrations.
What is great about this concept is it adds style to your back glass without affecting convenience. With these glass graphics, you can still see from the inside out, but those outside will not be able to view the interiors of your car. This could be another alternative than having just your car glass applied with plain tint.
Should your back glass needs repair or replacement, you should also contact the proper experts. Improper removal of back glass can disable safety features especially for modern vehicles. The computer system can also be easily disabled through improper disconnection procedures. If that would happen, you have to pay an additional sum for the dealer to reset the computer.
In getting mobile services, also ensure that they have the proper installer certification. Most mobile installers don't usually have certification when it comes to mobile glass replacement. Some are even just hired as sub-contractors by glass companies, so they are not really experts when it comes to the procedures of automotive glass installation.
The fastest may not always be the best in mobile glass replacement. To get more things done, some use cheap materials and reuse old molding to accommodate as much customers as possible. So always keep in mind to avail quality mobile services even if they charge a little bit higher. The hassle of complaining or having the job re-done can be more costly for you in the process.
The back glass is a very important part of in the safety and functioning of your car or truck, so it pays that you give a little attention to it. Always check that they are in good condition everyday before you drive to work or school.
