    Decided I'm going to totally strip the blazer, to include the windshield frame and all body panels.

    Question: where do I cut the windshield frame. OK, also, what are A-pillars?

    Thanks,

    A-pillars are the pillars supporting the windshield frame. the pillars are what support the roof in most vehicles. blazers don't have anymore pillars, but if they did, the ones behind the front doors are B-pillars, and the ones behind rear doors are C-pillars. wagons have D-pillars.

    I hope that explains it sufficiently. as for where to cut, unless you have rust on the A-pillars it is better to cut the welds at the top of them and only replace the cross piece.
