Cowl Gasket Replacement

So an interesting dilema......Replaced the cowl gasket today. Went to make up the windshield and while I get the the bracket bolts in at the dash, I am an inch or more out at the top to make up the sport bar extensions. Any suggestions for putting tension to the top of the frame so I can make these up without tweeking the windshield frame or breaking the glass?

maybe a longer bolt to pull the frame back enough to get the permenant ones started.

Left the bottoms loose and found a 5" L bolt and nut in the stash collection. The racheting combination wrenches my wife gave me for christmas really paid off. Pulled them right in so I could insert the 1" long stock bolts! All done!
