While working on a Tracks reshell, I thought I’d show you what I did to remove the windshield, and how I fit my Corvette.

It's easy stuff.

Take off the windshield to fit the body. At the top of the windshield are two plastic tabs at the hinges. Cut them off with a Dremel or X-Acto knife. The shield rises to expose the screws. There is no real harm to Tracks or Wheeljack:

Personally, I don't understand why they limited the movement of the shield. Now it’s open to mod under it if you want. You know "guts of the mid-section. Besides , I’m accident prone. Probably would run my driver into my hand.

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