Side window, front or back?

Side or back. You can’t drive without a windscreen.

Saran wrap and duct tape.

Get yourself dark clothes and piano wire, go out after midnight, find a car similar to yours and go to town !!!

Some thick, clear plastic sheeting. You can often find it at a painter’s supply store.

I like @XOIIO response. just be sure not to get tape on the actual car. Heat from the sun will bake that tape residue crap on for EVERRRRR.

My dad used duct tape when the wind shattered his back window and he had to wait for the insurance company to approve it.

Tape a duck photographer to your donut and chain him up in your basement! ;))

In most state, insurance covers windshields at 100%, and you can get them fixed within 24 hours. Some companies come to your home or workplace and do it.

Hey Lucille! Where do you get your donuts from?

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Duckin’Donuts! Where do you get yours??

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

Where am I supposed to get a picture of a duck eating a doughnut?

Vunessuh's avatar

@Captain_Fantasy From Duckin’ Donuts.

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

There arent any of those over here.
I think someone just volunteered for getting a photo of a duck eating a doughnut.
Please don’t force feed the ducks

Dust mites keep me awake at night with all the sex they’re havin’ under my bed.

@Vunessuh Well, at least someone is getting some!

A piece of 1/8 inch plexiglass. It is easy to cut and can be taped in place.
You can buy it at any of the hardware stores.
Cut a piece of cardboard first and then trace it out so you know the size.
