Well, first I ordered mine from Autozone, 29 bucks no shipping. I comment that because some manufactures may be different from others? Anyway, word of warning REMOVE THE VISORS FIRST!!!! Or if like me your an idiot you cant figure out why the frame wont fold down after all the bolts are out. DUH, the visor frame overlaps the plate on the rollbal attaching point. Yes I can admit when I do something stupid.
THe real problem seems to be the new seal is thicker than the original or the original had compressed a whole bunch! So it is a struggle to get the frame back enough to reattach the roll bar.
Also I suggest tightening the floor and rear bolts on the roll bar mount before beginning. I think mine may have been a little loose so when I really pulled on the windshield frame to tighten the front it may have shifted the bar a little. So at the end of the day the top of my windshield frame is about a 1/4 inch forward of where it should be for the doors to line up properly. I ran out of time last night so this weekend I think I need to loosen everything, close the doors and use a ratchet strap to shift everything into place.
I am sure others know far better than I what went wrong here but that was my experience.

Ok, so I out on a set of Teraflex Disco's, put on a new cowl seal and did the round inset LED tail lights. What a day!
That darn seal is a major PIA. It has not yet compressed enough for the doors to line up with the windshield frame yet. Man I had no idea a 30 minute seal replacement could be a 3 hour struggle!

|badweatherbiker||scored a set of old 31's on Ford rims yesterday for 150. They were not dryrotted and cracked and had about 40% tread left but you could tell they were sitting in the garage for a while. slightly dry but better than slicks, got them on yesterday and it rides like a different vehicle. I also got the timing set changed out so it is back on the road for now, runs like a new motor! no more low speed hopping and motor timing is right so she runs smooth!|
