I hope you are right lol. It’s pretty scary watching the windshield move that much tho 😬. I’ll get some videos of it soon.
I haven't seen or heard of glass breaking under 160dB and most of those aren't under 165. I'd say it's safe to guess you're not there.

It is extremely safe lol. The top of the windshield is starting to show something tho, not sure if they are small cracks or the seal is starting to fail.

Tint coming off?

Not like OP is there either. Still though that is low for breaking glass as far as where most people can hold a windshield in.

It’s on the sides as well so can’t be the tint.

Windshield shape has alot to do with how eaisely it will crack. Flatter windshields break eaiser. Since most cars after like 1980 have curved windshields, it takes alot more to break them. I broke the windshield in my 1970 beetle smacking a spider on it, lol.

Lmao I’d never smack a spider. Last time I spotted one in my car while driving I almost crashed the car 😂.

It was definitely a panic moment. Spiders are the one thing that makes my skin crawl. It was on my rear view mirror and then hopped on the windshield right in front of my face. To anyone not familiar with the seating position of a 1970 beetle, the windshield is basically flat, and only about 18 inches in front of you. I panicked, smacked the damn thing, and got a lovely cracked windshield for my efforts.

Took the car out today to show my buddy and some guys from his job who are into systems. Hopefully these videos work! Had to shorten it big time so it should.
Yeah your front windshield is flexing pretty hard. Looks like it pounds!

So far not getting dusty but it would be easy to clean them by blowing them off with an air compressor. They sit about an inch back just under the arm rests so water won’t be an issue. It’s raining today actually 😂.
