Windshield Frame

Fit the holes of the Windshield Rubber Frame (gasket) over these matching pegs of the Windshield Frame.

One side of the Windshield Rubber Frame has a wide groove around the edge. This is the side that fits against the Windshield Frame:

Windshield

Now, press the holes of the Windshield over the same pegs of the Windshield Frame, capturing the gasket in between.

This was a press-fit, so no screws or glue were required. The Windshield comes protected in a plastic film, I kept that nearby.

Once this was finished, I re-wrapped the film around the Windshield assembly to protect it until it is installed. Note that I bumped the bottom of the rubber gasket with my fingers here and misaligned it. It can easily be moved back into place (see the final photo):

Thoughts


This Windshield assembly will be installed into the roof with Pack 52 so keep it somewhere safe for now.
