Well I'm pretty much there, just have to design a lift that will work in my little shop she'll be pretty crowded thinking of putting in a pulley on a small track so can move it over to the dolly. Question is does anyone have an approximate weight of just the body on a 75, rads out bumpers are off, as well as numerous other parts, and windshield is about half way out. having trouble with the clips on the trim on top of windshield not exactly sure how they are clipped on.

Good question about the actual body weight. Don't think I've ever seen that info published anywhere. I can say that the doors by themselves prolly weigh as much(or more) as the actual body. Just a s.w.a.g, I'd say somewhere around 600 pounds for JUST the body...no glass/doors. Windshield trim clips are kinda goofy, but there are small "posts" on the framework that the clips clip on to. Sometimes the clips can be removed easily, sometimes you just have to say the right words....especially if the frame/clips have a little rust on them. My only suggestion is to scrape/clean all of the sealer of of them so you can get a good look at them. From there, you should be able to get a small screwdriver down under the bottom of the clip, and pry/twist upward to pop them off. Here is a pic of what they should look like. These are replacement clips, and they come with the little screws to replace any broken posts, or for a new install on a frame with no posts. hth.
