Is it possible to replace the glass only?

I just dropped my pixel and the glass cracked in the right upper and left bottom corner. Now I can either buy a screen and replace it or the glass only (which only costs about 13€) - Is it possible to just remove the glass and replace it? In your guide to replacing the screen, it kinda looks like it would be possible. The screen works fine so far,

A quote from a reddit post, in short it’s not economically viable for anyone that does not do screen refurbishing for a living:"

Unless you invest about 3k in the right equipment and you practice on another 4-8 screens breaking most of them I'm sure you could do it, seriously don't even bother.

Having bought a front glass replacement kit online c.£14, it arrived with no instructions or advice! Now having checked the YouTube videos showing how to do it I concluded that it would be very difficult if not almost impossible for a DIY amateur without a heat gun or heating pad and other specialised equipment to accomplish this task. It is a tricky operation as you have to separate the old LCD screen which is bonded to the original cracked glass screen. Looks like I need to buy a new phone and protect it better!
