just realized the carpet makes the glass edge a little difficult to see, but i doubt that's important

idk how expensive they are, or if youd ever use it again, but maybe a heat gun? might be faster.
actually wait a minute, what are you gonna do after completely removing the hinge? are you going to add a different one?
