I need to lower the windshield frame in order to replace the hinge with a stainless steel hinge. There is some rust on the hinge, but I don't see any on the body or window frame.
Question is: Do I have to remove the roof completely in order to lower the windshield? Also, where the roof is supported by a bar going into the furthermost rear quarter, should I take those bolts out or what?
Thanks in advance.
Max

you dont have to remove the hardtop, but you will have to lift it up, i would remove all the bolts, alogn the windshield frame and on the bed rails.
