Windscreen removal
Hey folks,

I'm beginning to prep my rig to paint it and have come to a sticky area. The front windscreen. I've removed them from other types of car before but they are slightly curved which makes it relatively easy to push out (with the help of another person).

I've noticed the zook one is flat and that the rubbers are quite solid. Has anyone pulled the glass from their zook before?

It is as simple as using string to open the rubbers up enough to begin pushing the windscreen out (towards the front of the zook)?

Are they prone to cracking on their way out?

Can the be pushed from one side (drivers side) and then slowly worked over to the other side (passenger side)?

any tips would be great.

Re: Windscreen removal
In a bug, not a zook I used to usea hair dryer to heat the rubber up enough to make it pliant, You gould drag it o/s on a s*&t hot day and let teh sun help you soften the rubbers and then mess with it???? How's the beast??

Re: Windscreen removal
Do you really have to remove the windshield? I painted mine and just taped it off around the rubber seal. You could even paint part of the rubber seal to keep it looking consistant if need be.
