    New to me 1970 jeepster. V6 auto, power steering, power brakes.. Plan is to keep it looking original.
    Add some minor changes like suspension & braking upgrades.

    We've started tearing it down for a restoration.
    Body is almost ready to come off. I'm having issues with the windshield frame. Is there a trick to separating the windshield frame from the main body ?
    The Three bolts are out. I don't see any other fasteners that hold it on....
    Seems like it should move up and out ? But thats not moving it

    There are more bolts. At least two more. The sides of the frame extend down and the bolts are accessable under the dash on both sides.

    Look inside the sides under the dash. As Jackdog said, think it's two more bolts per side. Either 1/2" or 9/16" head on the bolts.

    Got it. Those were the issue. I looked up there multiple times before my original post, never seen them.
    Thanks!
