914 rear window removal

Hi, the little elbow that holds my engine lid
snapped off along with the sheetmetal that is
part of my firewall. So now I need to reweld it but I need to remove my rear window to do it. I'm probably going to MIG weld, I'll take my chances with removing the window instead of pussyfooting around and worrying about the heat generated in the welding area. Any suggestions anyone has on removing the window would be appreciated. Thanks

I removed the rear window last night after about 2 and a half hours of sufferage. Drove the car to the garage where I keep and and, YAHOO!!. That little 2.0 bored out to a 2.1 via FAT perforamance sounds even better. I can hear every miss and can tell that the valves need adjustment. I'm considering of putting in Plexiglass instead of the orignal glass back on. Reason is I'm going to do a resto when I move to New Mexico.

Remember if its too loud you dont have tineitus(?).

I havent been able to get the elbow welded this weekend. My uncle works in a shop but he wasnt able to get me access this weekend. I'm probably just going to buy a welder out of a Sears catalog and do it myself. I found a Lincoln welder apparently its called a 'Weld-Pak 100'. Its design to work without argon, instead it uses a flux core wire. Sears wants 379 and with shipping I think is 30 bucks about 409 bucks or so. Does anyone have any experience with this welder or Lincolns (not the car :-))in general?. Also has anyone ever welded with the flux core wire setup before?. This unit hooks up to 115v/20amp. Thanks for the input in advance.

Also the duty cycle is 20%@88 amps, in case anyone feels that this is relevant information.
