Do you have the old windshield out? That's a fun job



You'll need butyl and some suction cups, and if you haven't installed one before you'll need a friend and some patients. Will the mouldings cover the "dents"?

Piano wire, Tube of black Eruathane, Calk Gun, 2 vice grips, 2 people, 120 grit sand paper, Eruathane Surface prep for window install.



Pull off mouldings



slide 2 foot peice of piano wire through to the other side(These break often).



Attach vice grips to each end, you and your pal pull back and forth and sort of saw through the eurathante. Dont scratch up the pain on your car!!!!!



Pop the window out.



Clean up down to the paint.



Save the wedges/clips



Sand down area.



Apply black surface prep



Lay down a liberal ammount of erothane.



Set window down.



Slide arround/push tilll its where you want it.



Tape it so it does not move.



let it dry



ect ect.



Those are pretty shitty instructions but you get the idea.
