I cut hundreds of flat laminated safety glass for the windshields of the 40's and 50's cars. It 's so simple a 15 year old can do it (me)in 1955. Use simple glass cutting tool and cut one side to transferred pattern. Flip glass trace pattern and cut second side. Break glass on both sides.Use metal oil can with alcohol in it. spray some, burn some. The laminate will melt and you can pull off the scrap. Grind and buff smooth with appropriate wheels. Local shop cut and polished a windshield from tinted safety plate for my Suzuki Samurai in about 30 minutes.

Sounds like the answer I am looking for. I still have some questions though. I have experience cutting iregular shapes in regular window glass, but not saftey glass.
My e-mail is open, and hope you could elaborate a bit more there.
Thanks, Loren
