Wait, Safelite did an old school gasket type windshield replacement?
Correct. It was done in their shop not remote service as they needed two guys. They did not have any issues with the chrome. I did not find any scratches or dents on the chrome.

This is the thing you really need to tend to when you replace your glass. The guy might wire wheel some of the rust, which had been done before I did my body work. If they are there to replace a windshield they aren't going to say, "hey, do you want to take care of this rust?" They are going to do their best to sleep on a new windshield and get on to the next job.

This is why when I eventually have the windshield done, it'll be with a new OEM gasket, rubber lock strip from Wagon Gear (which I have) and I'll have it done at the Land Cruiser Shop in Sandpoint, ID (short drive from me) so they can do whatever necessary body work if any nastiness is found underneath, along with resealing and repairing the gutter. Crossing my fingers I can afford to get it done by next summer, but that depends on the economy and my ability to get a good job that at least matches my welding gig I lost earlier this year. Half the company got 86'd after a corporate buyout.
