69 windshield removal

Does anyone have any tips on removing the windshield from my 69 camaro? The adhesive stuff is really caked on there so I’m having a hard time getting through it. I will also be removing the rear glass as well so if you have any tips on that too.

Re: 69 windshield removal

if you can find a place to insert a wire through the adhesive then pull it around SLOWLY through the adhesive it should cut it. Takes two coordinated people to do it. Hammer works well if you are going to replace it.

Re: 69 windshield removal

Places that sell auto paint should sell the wire. It works well once you get a spot where you can pass it through the sealer and use it like a saw to cut through the adhesive. I used some one to help me. I was on the inside and they were outside. They also make removal tool. Harbor Freight sells them for 12 or 13 dollars. They work good too.

Re: 69 windshield removal

If you use the knife on the windshield be careful, one twist the wrong way and itís broke. Back glass is tempered, you can get away with being a bit more aggressive. Piano wire is the safe bet if youíve never done this before.

Re: 69 windshield removal

Cold tools and wire doesn't work well in cold weather. There are hot knives and vibrating cutting tools that work much better.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
