    Putting windshield back together

    During the restoration of my 54 TR-2, I removed the windshield to replace the rubber and Dzus fittings. I have the frame and side mounts together and need some hints on the best way to install the upper and lower rubber weather trim. I also have new dzus fittings along with some aluminum washers. How do I install these washers to the fittings? I know I have to first put the dzus fasteners through the hole but what I do to attach them ??

    Try post #157 on this thread:

    https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/...or-a-TR2/page4

    The dzeus installs by putting the dzeus through the hole, adding a spring to the back, then adding the aluminum cone washer. Then invert the "cone" and the washer will hold the assembly together.

    Dzeus fitting worked fine. I followed Post #157 which was very helpful in getting the bottom rubber installed, now for the top. The screw driver push worked great for the bottom rubber, but not for the top. P 157 doesn't address this install. I even removed one of the side molding to try and slide it up the side and on to the top; it keeps coming out of the slot.

    Any hints on this would be a great help.

    For the top, the side braces must come off. The top rubber then slides into the slot, and finally the ends are trimmed to match the side braces once they are re-installed. If the top rubber will not slide easily, then the previous rubber is likely broken off and cracked, still remaining in the channel.

    Post #158 shows all this.
