I can't give step by step, although I have done this before.  What I can 
say is this - I complain about how much time it takes to adjust the 
valves on my Porsche - it's about 6 hours of work - and by far the worst 
job I've had to do is replacing my windshield on my MGB.  I figured 24 
hours of tedious work when I did that.  What I do remember doing is this 
- remove the rear view mirror rod, drop the dashboard, remove the 
"stantion" bolts on the windshield frame, pull entire windshield 
assembly ( frame, glass, gaskets, etc.), disassemble the frame, remove 
glass and gaskets.  And then, the obvious that takes even longer than 
that - installation is the reverse of removal.
