Still need windshield help
Written by sr139fox on 6/12/2011 at 04:03 pm

I sometimes check you tube for help when I need tackle a project I never tried
before. I take the best from each video and tackle the job. Try these links
and see what others are out there.

(Unless I can use a circular saw with a plywood blade. No? I didn't think so.)

repairable, I'd hate to have do that. If I can take it off in one piece, I'm
willing to ship it for the shipping cost.
