I don't think you can trim tempered glass.

Saw mister Foose do it on Over Haulin.
he used a torch to heat the plastic and whatever gizmo thinga ma jig to cut the glass.
It can be done.

I think that's laminated glass like a windshield, saw that show too.

You said tempered glass, tempered doesn't have plastic in the middle like a windshield. Tempered is like the door glass it will shatter if you try to trim it as far as I know.

I tried to trim a piece of tempered once sanded it down just to round the corners did a nice job and was real careful not to go to fast or use to rough of sand paper. Well I got it trimmed and thought I had it made in the shade. 15 mins later BANG pile of chips, it shattered. Good luck let us know if you get it done. Can't you return it ??

you really can't trim tempered glass. I have sanded some down successfully for chop top vehicles. but it takes time. I have a 60" upright belt sander that has water that runs over the belt continuesly. it is made for sanding and polishing glass. The glass you've seen done on overhaulin is laminated. Re- tempering??? you need a tempering furnace, last I checked you could pick one up for around 50k. In my shop I can have custom tempered made. I first have to make a pattern, then I can either cut a peice of glass and send it off to have tempered or just send the pattern off with all the specs and they cut it and temper it for me. If its not a custom piece can you not return it?
