    Sheeoot, the paint scheme looks better than the metal holding it up. Ah well, just a snapshot in time. 12 months, 'nother year, 'nother color(s).:xmas:

    Did you do the windshield yourself? If so...whats involved? How long did it take? I gotta put a windhield in my truggy sometime in the next few weeks...Been tryin to decide if I should try doin myself, or just call one of the windshield places. Anyone know what those places charge to do a windshield?

    Btw, the rig looks alittle more civilized now. Whens the first wheelin trip?:D

    the windshield itself is a piece of cake, the lockstrip however is a pita if you don't have the $20 tool that lets you do it in like 3 minutes.

    getting the windshield out without cracking is the real PITA, take a putty knife and go all the way around both sides after removing the lockstrip to help loosen the windshield from the weatherstripping.

    the truck looks nice btw, it looks wierd without a top/cage.

    Sorry for the hi-jack Brandon..:bow:

    I don't have to pull a windshield out, it's already gone. I just have to install a new one. Can you buy this tool somewhere? And I assume the "lock strip" is the rubber gasket thing? Say I grab a windshield from pick-n-pull or something...Do I need to try to save the gasket thing? Or do I have to get a new one?

    ~edit~

    Ok, after reading your post again, I figured out that the lock strip and the weather strip are seprate. The weather strip goes in first, then the windshield, then the lock strip...right? So, assuming I'm carefull, I can get all these pieces out of a junk yard truck intact and re-useable?

    here is a tool i found online, its only $15
    http://www.menintools.com/lisle/windowstrip.html
    i have use this exact tool, its worth double the price of it.

    if you look at a truck, the lockstrip is the plastic piece that is kinda inside the weatherstripping. the lock strip is reusable as long as its not broke. if your weather stripping is good, you shoudn't need another one. id get it either way and use the better of the two in your truck.
