We were getting close to Canada on I-93, just cruising along when something went flying by. I thought it was a piece of trash except that it was yellow in color. Actually it was the same color yellow as the FJ, so we pulled over to see what happened. One of the panels that had been removed in replacing the windshield had just blown off!
There were no cars coming so we backed down the shoulder to get the panel back. Once we got there, out of nowhere cars were everywhere and because we were on the side of the road they were going into the left lane where my panel was! Luckily nobody ran it over and I was able to get it out of the road. It looked like the plastic clips had not been snapped back in properly and the wind was able to pop the panel loose.
We immediately called the glass shop and they said they would replace it for us, we just needed to call them when we got back home. Thank goodness for that, this one was now dinged up and I couldn’t get it to snap on tight enough for me to trust it, so it’s going to make the rest of the trip under my seat.
