Jeff, not to sound pessimistic, but.....The windshield glass on 5000's is
*very* tough to get out due to the slope angle at the front cowl. We break
'em 90% of the time. All the other pieces come out with a heat knife or piano
wire, but check with your local glass shop. Maybe they've got a trick our guy
doesn't know...
