Smile How to remove the rusty clips from glass


I am working on a 66 tradewind & all the window clips are rusted, what is the best way to remove the clips. I think they are original clips & caulk was used to attach it to the glass.

I had that fun job with my '67. I eventually got all of the old clips removed by soaking them in PB Blaster, then using a very thin putty knife to loosen the bond between the clip and the glass. It takes a lot of patience (but the results are so worth it!) Good luck.
