So anyway, I left State Farm and drove over to Chuck Davis. This was even trickier, because I tried to go south around the Astrodome, forgetting that the construction was clogging traffic on the westbound feeder of 610 as well as the eastbound feeder! Oh, and add all the people going to Astroworld to that mess as well. So anyway, I got as far as the feeder and decided, hell with this. So I drove south around the back of Astroworld.
Finally I got to the Chuck Davis body shop, went in, waited a bit, and then got to talk to someone. At first his eyes widened at the loooong list of Things The Car Needs Done To It. But then I told him I didn't care about a new paint job, I just wanted the window replaced. He told me it'd take about two weeks, 'cause they don't have a glass repair guy at the place. He suggested I take it to a glass repair place instead. So I thanked him and drove home, without even really having gotten an answer on the other thing I wanted to know, which was whether I'd need to worry about rust. As nice as it'd be to have the car panels repaired and repainted, that'd be expensive. I'd prefer to just put some touch-up paint on it. Or even do nothing. Except I don't know whether or not the scratches are deep enough to worry about rust. But the guy didn't even look at the car or anything.
Oh well. So anyway, as I drove around, I noticed there were still some shards of glass stuck under the rubber strips that normally grip the window around the edges, and they were slowly falling out onto the street. So when I got home, I got a bag and picked most of them out. Some fell inside the door cavity instead. So then I put *another* garbage bag over the hole (grumble), and went inside all tired & sweaty.
Tomorrow I'm gonna call Binswanger Glass and ask them questions about getting the window replaced.
