The gasket is probably too brittle to remove - I just take a sharp wood chisel and lay it flat on the glass and push it around the perimeter. The windshield has four clips that fold over to hold it in place.

Front window installs/removes from the outside. Rear window installs/removes from the inside.

New gaskets are available from several vendors.

Clean and paint the body around the opening to smooth things and let the gasket slide better. Lube them really good with dish soap and use a spray water bottle as you pull on the strings - as outlined in the shop manual. Don't hurry. I broke a couple that way.

Got a little done. The windshield came out thanks to the help and advise plus I got the dash cluster off eBay and got it apart and painted to match the future colors of the truck. I like it just got to get the putter trim piece fixed and its done.

That sounds better - I have a note that the chassis manual for '52 lists Vermillion Red as code N.

I'm taking a break on the truck for a few days. Soo much still to do but one thing at a time is the only way to go
