    hi again doing a tracks reshell.. thought i'd show you what i did to remove the windshield, and how i fit my corvette. easy stuff. take off the shield to fit the body. top of shield are two plastic tabs at the hinges. cut them off with a dremel or exacto knife. shield raises to expose the screws. no real harm to wheeljack, until ...i get my stratos body.

    he said it's for a reshell project so it's going to be removed and replaced with something else.

    Thanks for sharing, I couldn't work out how the heck to get to those screws when making Road Rage.

    Why not just push the bar that holds the roof/windscreen part out?

    I had to do this for the Battlecharger project I did. I don't know why Has/Tak would limit the movement of the roof but they did. Definitely a must have tutorial for anyone who wants to work with this mold. Good luck with the re-shell! I'm doing the same!
