I found a donor wagon in a salvage yard. I had no tools with me, but picked up a few things. After I began thinking about the windshield. I hope to get back before it feeds the crusher.  If it's a sungate, how would I remove it ?

The same way you remove any windshield. The tend to be a little brittle, and you can damage the perimeter with a wire. I have yet to successfully remove a front windshield. You can get extra long boxcutters at most auto paint dealers, and extra long blades for them as well. I saw the blades on ebay. The blades can also have saw teeth. You may have to remove the dash to get to the bottom of the windshield from inside. If you can add some heat to the urethane, it will be easier to cut.

Save yourself a lot of potential work,and clean it inside and out before you remove it. A lot scratches,nicks,etc won't be obvious until it is cleaned

Also check the edges, especially the lower corners, for any sign of delamination (fogging). It will certainly spread when the glass is subjected to the strain of removal and reinstallation.
