Windshield removal. I think I got the most out of this one. Had to put a temporary windshield in until I can fix the other one in stock.

Had to drill out two bolts

And two here as well. Note: these were not rusted in. They seem to be aluminum or ... I'm not sure but they were clean. On these two I used the air ratchet first instead of doing it by hand and stripped them.

Did you amnti-seize the bolts on the hinges?

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

No, the W-shield is coming back off to go on the CJ8 build & Peach is getting a better one (have to cut a small bad piece out/fix). I will also cut the lip (where the rust holes are)(I'm sure JimB wants a write up) and fix that as well. Thanks for the tip, I had forgotten about it.
