I've done it successfully twice. Keep the body well supported and try not to flex it at all. Having the tires off helps for clearance and make sure everything is disconnected from the main body.Checking to see how many have been lucky in pulling a body with windshield installed and NOT cracking it? To do what I need to do I really need the body off.
I do have the pull cutters and such to remove windows and have done so without breaking them before, but, with the wicked curve of the SLC one I know I am rolling the dice!
Just checking. Lol. I think I will try to pull it first (I know, even more dangerous) but someone didn't take alot of time masking the rubber trim around it and want to replace it also. Since I will be repainting, you can mask that trim very well if done right, but it is never 100% unless you paint under it imo.Thankfully it's 2 for 2 since it's an expensive windshield.
Got a pile of parts waiting for me when I got home, excited to get the brake cables wrapped up, and Oregon decides to have a heat wave and it's 92 in the garage. Ugh.I went through the middle too with my e-brake cables. It's a squeeze, but you can get the shifter cables under the e-brake assembly if you route them right.
