Perhaps "Crakone" so it sounds cool like "Hakone"

Well someplace at sometime somebody used the term “fitment” to mean fit so I am just going to run with crackment as a brand new word.

going by the stories of your neighborhood, it could also mean the basement of one's house where one partakes in cocaine...

That would be more meth than crack. Crack costs too much.

That makes sense. I can use the work truck for a day so do indeed have the luxury.

Yours appears to be a five arc crackment. I got a single pit crackment in mine the first month I had it, but it was minor and is still there.

I also have a lot of pitment on mine.

So the good news is that they don't have aftermarket windshields for the 86 (in Canada at any rate so I know the replacement will be OEM quality.

The bad news is that since it is OEM and has to come through a dealer they have not one single clue when they will be able to get one. So far they are at a guy has called a guy that has called a guy that has called a guy that looked at a computer stage of the search.

They don't have Safelite up there in the frozen north? I've had 2 windshields replaced and each time they asked if I wanted one with green tint and a grey border or just green tinted. And here in Florida it's free. It's the law. The only good law they have here.

Why is toothpaste always crackmint flavored?
So strong it burns and tastes vile.

I guess there's bubble gum flavah but I'd prefer blackjack or watermelon.
