I sold my Cavalier in late 2006. Fifteen years later I met it once again. It seems that the past years have not benefited it (except somebody installed Z24 trim on it) and it looked totally abandoned. So... I saw no other way than buy it back.

Yeah... It seems more complicated than years ago. Each part I search at local suppliers sites is marked as «discontinued». Anybody knows, is there windshield aftermarket manufacturer and corresponding partnumber? Everything I found is Pinkilgton DW01074 but… It seems that it is discontinued too.
I can restore body, paint, I am already rebuilding interior - it was trashed, OK, nothing impossible here, but there is no any way to make new wihdshield by my own.

Ironically, here is no any another car for parts at all. One I found is somewhere near Novosibirsk (just google where it is, OMG)… Well, it seems that there is nothing to do but order custom made windshield. It'll be a bit expensive, but there only way for now.

Right now I restoring the interior. As I said before it is trashed and no spare parts is possible to find here, so I decided to totally rebuild the interior. Since all plastic parts are scraped and cracked, there is no way to make them OEM-like. OK, I have welded them, glued them and make it a nice (YMMV about «nice», lol) look with black alcantara. The roof is in process:
Wood Rectangle Natural material Composite material Beige

And complete:
Bumper Automotive exterior Flooring Gas Automotive tire


Interior parts in process:
Wood Flooring Floor Gas Composite material


Add all together waiting to be installed in place:
Sleeve Grey Automotive tire Tints and shades Wood
