Crinamex..... I have yet to see a Crinamex windshield from China and I install a lot of them, They make the best 1217 out there now, once you scrub off the film from the (whatever they use to protect them during shipping). The Brand I don't buy anymore is Guardian, Unless it's the only option, Just Yesterday I installed a 1613 "China Guardian" Got it all done and then noticed a sizeable lammy defect in passenger viewing area, I install tons of Ford Truck Windshields, Carlite was the only glass I installed in the Ford Trucks, Then I noticed the Carlite Windshields with the Ford Logo's had Crinamex stickers on them, THEN I also noticed my vender jacked the Carlite price up so now I always ask for the Crinamex brand, We must be talking about another brand Because as I tell my customers, Crinamex come from Mexico but their good quality Windshields. PPG and Guardian are on the bottom of my list, And Pilkington is always my go to brand if available.
