Front and rear windshields

I have a 71 cutlass supreme I'm stripping down for restoration and I was just wondering what the difficulty behind reinstalling a front and rear windshield would be? I am going to take the glass out in order to install the rear quarters...

Oh and the seal around the front and rear windshields is leaking. I can tell because the rear dash was completely rotten.

Repairing the rusted areas will be the only difficult part. There are several videos on YouTube showing windshield installations. You have to decide whether you will you poly ethylene caulking which requires some finesse or butyl tape which is easier and possibly less messy. I suggest at your next car show look at the window eagles of cars using caulking vs those without. You can "cheat" by pre-priming the edges in black to hide any issues with poly. Good luck with your rust repairs.
