XT GL restoration progress

Postby crazyhorse_001 on Fri Nov 04, 2016 5:53 pm

So as some of you may, or may not know. I had a mishap with my GL a few months ago. The hood latch decided it didnt wanna latch anymore. This destroyed my hood and windshield.
Fast forward a few months, and i found terminal cancer in my XT6. The rear subframe mounts are rotted out. So much so that the subframe would shift under hard braking.
It didnt take long to decide that i should combine the 2 and make 1 nice one. The gl is very clean as far as rust goes, but not very straight.
Safelite says they stock a windshield for $285

Here's my progress so far...
