Quick & Easy Way to Restore Black Glass Edges

Many older cars had original window glass that was rounded and blackened on its top and side edges. Now, when modern replacement glass is cut by a shop or provided by some suppliers, the edges are rounded, but the greenish color of the edge tips-off "purists" that the glass has been replaced. To blacken the edges, just run a black, waterproof laundry marker over it and wipe off any excess. It will stain the glass edge.
