It is a wise man who knows his own limitations! Old proverb from someone, somewhere, sometime! (If not, put my name on it!):yup:Patrick, it is possible to get the front windshield out and reuse the rubber. The problem is if the rubber gasket for the windshield is original it is going to crack when it goes back in. Also the "gutter" that hold the chrome strip around the windshield may already be damaged to the point that it will not hold the chrome strip. The gasket isn't cheap, but well worth the money. When putting it back in, use 3/8" rope. The guys at the glass shop put min in for 35 dollars. They use a thicker rope than I did, and that was why I couldn'g get it in right. So if you are doing it yourself I would recommend 3/8 inch nylon rope for the installation. Or be a sissy like me and pay someone to do it.
