:obsessed: Had to brace the windshield - Not sure why, but had to until I install the new/used one that has been here for 6 months. Been busy. So here is a tech tip for windshield bracing.

1. Get a "L" bracket from Lowe's.
2. Cut it in half. P.S. This is one Peach bought a while ago so I could hang a shelf. :biggrin1:
3. Bend it to fit the windshield hinge & frame.
4. Sand windshield to get a good ground.
5. Take the welders ground & clamp the brace in place so U can weld it on.
6. Set the temp to low so U don't burn through the windshield frame like I did & have to fill it.
7. Take some camo spray paint & touch up your work.
8. Install new/used windshield in 6 more months.
