SPG took a rock a couple weeks ago, and the local shops I usually deal with wouldn't even try to find a replacement... "too old." Safelite was the backup plan, and they said "no problem," just a week for shipping from the Midwest. Although I grilled the phone operator for 10 minutes to be sure they could get it, and sure they could actually replace it, when I showed up Saturday for the work the tech cautioned me that replacement gaskets and molding are not available, and if they could not reuse that'd be the end of that.
Fortunately the old seal came out fine and they were able to reuse it, but I suppose the caution here is that the glass isn't the weak link, it's the rubber. Maybe something someone would want to hoard. Probably the next time this car needs a windshield it won't be able to have one. :(
