    What kind of search?

    "Google...How to see easily see traffic signals at intersections while behind the wheel of an early Jeep CJ5?"

    :lol:

    Hey focker, can I ask how you de-painted it? Wire brush, chemicals, sandblasting?

    The reason I ask is because I have a nice authentic windshield with minimal rust that I want to clean up, but I don't really want to remove the glass to do it. I should though.... just do it right.

    Also, where are you getting your replacement rubber for the bottom of the windshield?

    Wire wheel and Jasco paint remover. I wish I could have it blasted.

    If your seal's bad, do it right and remove the glass.

    If I had it to do over I would have had it sandblasted. I started with the wire wheel and keep thinking of having it blasted because I was hating life, but I kept at it, then it wasn't worth taking it somewhere. Jasco finished the hard to reach areas. Just typing Jasco make my skin burn...Be careful.

    I don't know much about them, but I was told this one was from a M38A1.

    The main frame was painted semi gloss a couple of weeks ago. I sprayed primer on the glass frame and took it to the glass shop.

    First obstacle. :( Now I have to get inventive...Without ruining what appears to be an original clamp.
