Hi Scott,

I've had a number replaced, but, as tight as I am, I have never considered
doing it myself.  I once had a mobile replacement; 2 guys replaced it in my
driveway.  Of course they really knew what they were doing and it only took
30 to 45 minutes it seemed, anyway.  My cost on windshields?  Always nada,
zilch, zero.  I have low cost coverage from USAA which is far from
extravagant.  The windshield guys advertise replacement at no cost.  Don't
ask me, I don't know.  But you can't beat the price if you have insurance.

Someone mentioned the cost of the experience and the learning curve as well;
good advice, imho.

My .02.
