Finally got some garage time! And after cleaning the clutter of the project 81 Luv I was able to wrench a little. It's also good to have a son who's a mechanic, I love the hand-me-down tools! He brought me this handy little gadget from Blue Point to remove windshields. So, I thought I would put it to good use. I managed to pull the back cab window and the windshield with out cracking either one. Phew! Got them both in the back seat of the Silverado and headed for our storage unit. Had to rearrange a few things, but ultimately found some space. Put the back cab window in it's place and moved the windshield to the tailgate to wrap it prior to storing. Found an old blanket that didn't have too many mouse turds on it. And proceeded to wrap the windshield. As I moved the windshield around, I tipped it up on an edge to get the blanket underneath and then set it back down. POP! Both my wife and I froze and looked at each other! Sure enough it had cracked! Apparently, when I tipped it up on end a corner slipped between the tailgate and bed and when I laid it back down it pinched and cracked. What a bummer! "DOH!"

That is definitely a bummer. But that glass should still be available. The rubber seals are getting difficult to find, though.
