So yesterday I made the purchase of a lifetime! I bought a red 4ft tall, 2 piece craftsman toolchest for $20! Came with the locking bars, keys, all the drawers roll perfectly, other than a couple scratches and dents, you would think it was brand new! I am still super excited about it lol.

Anyways, here is my problem: As I was unloading it yesterday from the backseat of my focus, I hit the corner against the window [nutkick] and scratched the tint off that part, and I think i may have etched the window. I think its 1/2 inch long at the most, and as wide as a pen line. I was wondering if that is going to be a problem in the future. I know that a small chip in the windshield will eventually end up spidering across the whole thing, but does that rule apply to side windows too?

Weather here gets down to -10 in winters and up to 115 in summers, if that makes any difference in the stress on the glass.

Thanks in advance!

Side windows are a totally differnt glass then the windshield, they will simply shatter when they break where the windshield has the safety glass. I would just keep an eye on it and it should be ok as long as its not real deep in the glass. Its more then likly a surface scratch.

So hows the new tool chest?!

Eh, you can't worry about that until it breaks dude. Depending on how easy it is to get Focus parts in your area, I might start searching for one in a junkyard to have it on hand in case something happens.

Good deal finding on the tool chest!! I wish I had a garage to put one in!!

THanks guys! I rechecked the window now that its light out, i barely scratched teh surface. So it pretty much just scratched the tint off that area.

The tool chest is bad-ass! I dont really have a garage to put it in yet either, but I will after I graduate!

Thanks again!!!!
