A low E guitar string is ideal. bend one end around a stick and use pliers to tighten it on. Then stick the other end through the hole you have made in the seal and bend it around a stick as well. A screwdrivers on each end will work as well. Then with a friend outside and you inside, cut though the seal with the wire in a sawing motion. Patience and taking it easy and slow will do the trick. Clean edge with a new razor blade and reseal. Good Luck, and easy does it.
Fantastic tips, Thanks GXP Venom. Ok, if I get a donor out in one piece without cracks, in theory... I clean up the donor windshield with a razor. I kick the piece of crap out of my truck (just kidding), is it like a one piece seal that I buy or a something like a contact epoxy that I glue it in with? I'm guessing that the glass rests on stops or something similar, I just line it up by eye and glue it in?
