Re: Windshield frame replacement advice???
I just did the windshield frame re-do also. Got mine from Light Line of LA. If you buy aftermarket, make sure to get the reinforced kind. You can run a search for windshield frame replace - I did a mini-writeup. Best advice I can offer is this:
1. Coat the hell out of the inside with a anti-rust primer (por-15 or Ospho or something), and then again with an anti-rust paint (rustoleum).
2. Be really careful with the threaded "mounting tabs" inside the windshield frame for the bolts which are on the front of the hinge. They are not attached - just loosely held by some metal tabs. If you aren't careful, you'll end up doing the "windshield frame dance" in your front yard like I did.
3. Unless you've done it before, have a 3rd party do the glass - I tried myself and broke it. Many others have tried, and most have also failed.
