Windshield Hinge Question, drilling out pin.
My 91 YJ windshield hinge pins have been stuck (rusted) for at least 10 years. No visible rust on the surface. When I last tried to fold the windshield down the hinges started to bend.
I replaced the windshield frame 8 years ago and had to drill out the torx heads on the upper half of the hinges.
I would like to make the windshield fold but I don't want to drill out the lower hinge torx heads because I would have to remove the dash to install new bolts.
Has anyone drilled out the pins? Can I hammer them out with a punch?
I would like to put pins in there so that I could quickly remove or fold the windshield for trail rides. I should also get better mileage while towing it on the trailer if the windshield is folded.
I drive over things.
