Discount Auto Glass was coming out today, so I decided to remove the window myself and treat some of the rust around the outside of the frame. After removing the glass, cleaning up the old rubber sealant, and grinding down the rust, I treated it with some rustoleum paint. This is a shot after grinding and paint. My boy David was cleaning up water on the floorboard from where it had rained last night and is in the shot.
About 4 hours later, while I was at work, the glass people came out and put in the new windshield. When I first walked up on it I could barely tell....it was so clear!
Next tasks; 1) finish removing dash, 2) replace brake booster, 3) finish gutting out interior, including headliner, 4) complete the restoration of the driver side floorboard, 5) grind out exterior rust on rockers, 6) fill rockers with Great Stuff foam (for help in bondo//fiberglass forming), 7) complete rocker bondo/fiberglass treatment, sand and prime, 8) reinsert new carpet, panels (after they've been painted), and backseat, 9) install 'new' dashboard (from donor car), 10) install new headliner and trim.
