After a few weeks of crappy weather(kinda tired of snow now) we got out there this weekend and got some done.

This was the only pic I got before Rum O'Clock but we did the side waiting on a quarter and half the roof. Knocked it down to bare metal and primed it. Back window will also need to come out. Any suggestions on that anyone?
If cutting the glass yourself makes you nervous call a mobile glass guy to come cut it out for you

There are several different methods I've used about all of them sawing it out with a wire and 2 pairs of vicegrips is a good one but usually requires 2 people a long handle (about 1' ) utility knife is another or a T handle window knife there are power tools for it also but if your not familiar there not a good idea be very careful of the defroster there easy to break

if its original, it was installed with butyl. set the car in the sun so the glass heats up and the butyl gets soft. then just push the glass out.

First truly beautiful day of the season and I spent it giving the daily some love. My buddy was on his one weekend a month National Guard duty so his house wasn't an option. No big deal! "Cherry Pie" got some love in the form of brake rotors, ceramic pads, plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. Gotta keep that daily happy.

Next weekend we'll be back on the Cutlass. Ordering the quarter panel at the end of April. Really craving to cruise in my old beast.
