Hello, The windshields were leaking on my 1987 MC9, so I bought new gaskets from MCI, and called my local glass guy. Now they won't go back in, and the glass channel in the gaskets seems to angle out. The roof has been raised, but the original windshield openings weren't changed. Is there a trick, or something I'm missing? Thanks.

The glass guy brought another fellow with him today that seems to know more what he's doing. They are very tight, and the weatherstrip is forced out a little bit in a few places, but they're in!! A little eurethane sealer in the gaps, and 'll be good to go.

Hi Zake1,

Did they use Dawn dish detergent?  That usually works.
