Cutting my klock werks!

Does anyone know the best thing to use to cut a windshield? Dremel, jigsaw? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

easy to do

I've had good success with a jig saw. Tape both sides of the windshield really well and be sure its wide enough that the jigsaw won't scratch the shield. Draw your line on the tape and take your time. When done cutting remove tape and take a fine file to run both side edges of your fresh cut until shaped and smooth. Finish off with 220 grit sandpaper. Careful to only rub the very edge of the windshield now.

Take your time.
Good luck
