Oh no, no where near good enough for bare aluminum. Not even close. It will be skim coated and painted. The windshield will be flat laminated safety glass. I should be able to have it cut locally.

I was privileged to be sent some of these stories several year ago. I can assure you they are most entertaining. Some are poignant, some are hilarious. I'm looking forward to getting the book.
