    How much would a windshield replacement cost if it was out of pocket?

    Depends on local labor costs etc. Typically the price of the glass PLUS $120-150 or so, PLUS the costs of taking the 4 pieces of trim and weatherstripping off (sometimes not all that easy) and putting it back on. That is the part that sometimes involves rusty screws etc. DMCH Glass comes with new weatherstripping.

    Dave, houstons site shows the windshield at $450 without antenna and $550 with the antenna just for the part before shipping costs.

    How can it be 120-150?

    That's the labor for the actual glass removal and replacement.

    That is where the word "Plus" comes in to play. As in the price of the glass, which I didn't list as there are choices, PLUS the cost of installation.

    Oh sorry man I went back and re-read what you wrote and I now see that I misread it the first time. I saw "price of glass" and "120-150" and put those together for eke reason. I didn't see the word PLUS at all. But now I understand.
    My apologies Dave.

    I need mine replaced too, It structurally sound, but the view through it is distorted... makes it hard to relax while driving.

    I'm in florida... Fort Lauderdale area... does anyone knows someone that can replace it? Or is my best bet taking it to the Delorean in Bonita Springs?

    Your best bet is to take it to DMC-FL, Mark in post #2 of this thread explains why. Good luck.

    In South FL, you're better off taking it to Bonita.

    I thought I had posted in this thread before but I have an NOS windshield in Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale if interested. I picked it up for one of my project cars that I ended up getting rid of. It'll be a year or two before my next D so I'd rather sell off my parts so I don't have them taking up space.
