    Yep, they can make the sides easy because it's flat. The problem comes in with the curved windshield.

    chopped!!!

    My friend and i are currently chopping his 93 s10 and yes it is alot of work... in order to bypass the whole step of getting a new windshield made, we simply kept the same angle and contour that the original windshield had so all that we have to do is get it cut down to the propper hieght so that no custom glass has to be made. The only problem with this is that you have to be extremely precise when you section the roof and pillars to make sure none of the original measurements are changed... definately quarter the roof too it makes it alot nicer in the long run even though its a little bit more work! Ill have pics posted of both of our trucks as soon as i take them...

    sorry dude all the glass is curved on a s-10 blazer, if the glass was flat, chopping it would be easy

    yeh no shit.... you cut the glass the same amount as you chop the roof and as long as you keep the same angle on the pillars it matches right up... i know this being that i am actually working on one now...

    Ummm... Actually, tempered glass can be cut. He could also use lexan for all the rear glass as well if he wants. I would.

    BTW, Please try to use the edit button instead of double posting.
    Update:My avalanche was totaled by my ex-gf. My business is in ruins. I now plan on finishing the engine repairs to my Saturn, and sell it. Once I get the bills paid off, I'm going to fix my Blazer.
    History:I bought a 2001 saturn sc2, then a 2005 avanche 1500 2wd, then a '87 S10 blazer 2dr 2wd on 07/24/2010, and on 04/01/2011 a '84 s10 blazer 2dr 2wd V8 drag racer(sort of)

    Tempered glass can NOT be cut. No matter how you put it. The glass is heated until it softening point and cooled very rapidly. The top layer compresses keeping the inner layer under stress. That's why its so much stronger but when the outer layer is broken all that stress inside the glass releases. That's why it shatters into hundreds of little glass cubes. You can't cut tempered. Period.

    Automotive glass is not chemically tempered so its irrelevant for his situation.
