    Re: Need to have my windshield installed...any one?? can ya do it?

    I did mine a couple months ago. It was easy. I used a friend (Dad) as a spotter but I could have done it by myself (I think)


    I lubed up the seal with soapy water then I hoisted it up into position and set the bottom into the seal as good as I could. Then I proceded to work the seal out with a home made plastic tool. I cut a Bondo spreader down to 2 inches and used it as the install tool. While lubing up the seal from time to time I worked my way around the window. Getting that strip back in was tough but with some patientce, and the bondo spreader, I got it in too.

    If I had more time I would come hold the window while you try to break it, I mean install it /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Good luck
