    Thank you for posting the glass install.... This is usually the part in most builds that no one see's.. Makes you wonder after a chop how guys did it.

    I tackled the windshield yesterday.

    First, the gasket would have to be cut and glued.

    I wasn't looking forward to the windshield install, but I spent more time looking for my rope than it took to install the windshield.

    It only took about fifteen minutes, and went in great.
