Leer cap glass

So last night I was backing out of my grams driveway and ran into her fifth wheel camper and it smashed my caps glass.

I just took it off and threw on my tonneau cover but what should I do about the cap. Does anyone have any experience with getting leer cap glass?

Yeah it sucks, it could have been worse, it didnt mess up and fiberglass so itll just be hard findin the glass. I did a little research and leers east coast division is in milton pa so thats not too far away.

It was a stupid mistake, didnt help that I have air in my brake lines haha.

Theres probably a local glass place around you somewhere. they can cut you a new one too. if your window frame is still good.

My dad is in the automotive glass business, you have to get the glass at Leer or a junkyard. Very few aftermarkets that are worth it.
