Default Re: supplier of 1933-34 Ford Windshield Rubber

Who installed the rubber gasket that tore apart?

My first couple attempts at installing these rubber windshield gaskets did not go well. The first one I tried, I definitely DID NOT have all the old rubber from the previous gasket completely cleaned out of the groove in frame. Then I was NOT using the best tool I could have chosen to push the rubber into the groove. Then I chose the wrong lube to use trying to make the rubber go in place, then finally I determined that I was not putting the right part of the gasket into the channel first. After much frustration, and ruining one gasket I nailed the proper installation procedure and everything worked and went together perfectly.
Unfortunately, I suspect that most folks complaining of having problems, and blaming the manufacturer's product, are actually experiencing user error.
