Default It's new windshield day!!

So I finally got off my duff and had my cracked windshield replaced. So for 2 hours or so and the equivalent of $142.00 nice shiny new windshield.

Here is the shop one gold attaboy for anybody that can read it. LOL

The hardest part of the whole deal was getting the mechanics huge hands inside and behind that bar to remove the two bolts holding the cowl cover on. It took longer to get those two tiny bolts out than it did to remove the old windshield LOL

Finally they got it off with no damage to the retaining clips.

Cutting it out. They had a tool with a handle to pull it and an "L" shaped blade to cut the old adhesive holding the windshield in. (Photo of the tool later)
