I just spent 2 days begging my windshield into place!! I got a seal from BFY Obsolete Parts and it fit like garbage, Im assuming they sent the wrong part since thats happened many times now. So I threw that out and bought one locally and was raped for $22 Confused Eventually I got it in, but it took me and 2 other guys. The last one I put in went in so smooth, I couldn't figure out why everybody had such a hard time Exclamation I guess its the luck of the draw, sometimes ya just have a hard time

What are youm using to put them in?

Here are some window installation tips.

Get yourself 15ft of NYLON 1/8 inch rope. (string & wire doesnt work well), and a can of WD-40 or spray lube of some kind.

First put the rubber on the window.

Insert the nylon rope around the perimeter of the window rubber down in the groove.

Spray it with lube (do be afraid to hose it on).

Get yourself a big suction cup with a release button, or a friend to help.

set the window into place, and begin pulling the rope around the perimiter.

When you are pulling the rope, pull it against the window and towards the center, pulling it straight out is harder to do, and you can tear the rubber.

After your done a little windex will clean the lube off of the window.

Hope this helps.

Putting them in sucks!! Not having them at all is worse!
I drove my Vert Baja with no top and only the front window for 3 years !
Rain, shine, hot, no problem but damn it was cold driving that thing at 2am everyday in Jan when I got off work.

To fix the heating problem get a non insulated canteen, fill it with hot water and rest in your lap. works just the opposite in the summer same canteen filled with ice and salt, you now have efficien A/C
