66 truck windshield removal

What is the best way to remove the front and rear windshield without breaking it. The gasket is new also. Starting body work on the cab and i don't want to miss any cancer if there is any behind the gaskets.

Much less chance of glass breakage if you just cut the gaskets. Take a long razor knife, hold it against and parallel to the windsheild, and cut the gasket. After this cut, nothing is actually holding the glass in, and will easily pop out. If you're determined to save the gasket, then starting from the inside, start pushing the lip of the gasket toward the outside of the window frame, going around the glass. Having someone hold some outward pressure on the glass will help. Go slow. It may take several passes for it too start moving. Especially if it's well sealed. Work slow and be patient.

Use a couple of screw drivers and push the rubber lip back under the pinch weld.Use small bites and go slow.
