As the saying goes.. been somewhere else, did that (Las Vegas, Stayed at the Best Western north of Nellis AFB (Across the street north) (Actually surrounded on 3 sides I think) while they put the self removing windshield back in for the 2nd time ... 3rd time I had the factory do it and remove the self removing option.

Luck you !! my other half refuses to even try. I just want her to be able to drive down an interstate. some time.
Offered to let her practice in a big parking lot or go with my neighbor the bus drive if she would fell more at ease.
OH well just have to keep trying.
