Looking for a replacement door glass for the driver side on a 2dr 78-81 Malibu....just did a quick google and didn't find any suppliers - anybody got some ideas for me?

Next question: How many different tints did the Malibu come OEM with?

I found this, but confusion still reigns....

I'm in a couple Fiero groups on Facebook, one of the members posted a pic of brand new door glass for his Fiero, but the glass itself was tinted, they didn't use a film. He said it was 'Prosource Glass' but didn't give much more for detail. I believe it's http://www.prosourceglassintl.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; but I'm not 100% sure, they're in MA.

Came as either clear or tint. A/C cars generally were spec'd with tinted all around, although not required. Tinted could be ordered on any car as a standalone option

It has been said no new glass is available for Malibus aside from windshields, and the odd piece that might be old stock in some glass shop.

If it matters, new glass will almost certainly be Chinese made.

If you have a power window setup I have a set of tinted glass for sale.
