guess it's not a bad idea if your stone cold broke and happen to have the gaskets already - and need to get to work on monday
im not saying i wouldnt do this, as i usually find the cheapest way possible to get things done on the daytona..

but float glass flatness is not a reliable flat surface and nowhere near as flat as typical machining granite surface or typical fly cut surface. plus doing it this way grinds in the metal shavings and abrasives...this is definitely an emergency/ultra-ultra cheap a&& way of gettin er done

but when i do try this i will be posting a video

I know this is a methid many have used to re & re their intake and exhaust manifold flanges. Also a good way to fix a deformed/warped turbo flange.

That's actually a pretty common method of resizing odd and irregular surfaces. Except they use a precision ground block of granite or cast iron deck. Check out some of Keith Fenner's videos. Im totally getting a mill and lathe as soon as the budget allows.
