January 28, 2007 - In order to make it easier to weld the cage in and paint the car, I removed the windshield.
This is always a little unnerving because it's easy to break the windshield and it's hard work. This one is a fairly good piece of glass (barring a bit of weld spatter from the previous owner). Mazda recommends piano wire on a couple of handles, so I used safety wire on a couple of screwdrivers. In conjunction with some razor blades, it did the job.
I then got in trouble for stashing the windshield in the spare bedroom. This is apparently a no-no. The single life made it easier to work on cars!
