Default Windshield

I am in need of a new, or used, front windshield for my 1982 XJ6 Series 3. I felt the need to remove mine due to a faulty seal letting water into the cabin, and found rust on the frame after removing it. But I broke the damn thing upon trying to remove it. I'm having a difficult time finding a replacement windshield at a decent price to install myself. I also removed the rear windshield and took a lot more time doing it and managed to remove it intact (thank goodness!)

So, if anyone knows of an individual, shop, breakers yard or supplier in the southern New York area that could sell me a windshield, new or used, that'd be great!!

You can normally still get them at any glass-repair shop.

An update: I ordered my replacement windshield from rockauto.com. $119 plus $85 shipping. Very reasonable! The glass came well packed in a large cardboard box and wrapped with so much bubble wrap that my next move will be much easier. I highly recommend them, just so long as you don't need a triple x.
