Picked up a great tip from Classic Motorsports:

Guitar String: Best Tool for the Job
Classic Motorsports forum reader wheelsmithy suggested a creative trick for removing windshields. Have you found a sweet U-PULL-IT windshield and need to remove it from a vehicle without breaking it? Just bring an old guitar E string and a buddy (very important) to the junkyard. Pass the string through the rubber windshield surround, and saw away. Works every time and is sort of like a lumberjack competition. Also works with bass strings (round wound, not square wound for the non-musical types).
