The Windscreen Installation is a task that requires two people because it is expensive, heavy and cumbersome. Furthermore, the risk of damage is high to both the car body and the actual screen itself which has to be repeatedly inserted and adjusted to correctly fit the rubber weather seal and stanchions to the body.
Prior to installing the Windscreen cut the holes for the demister vent and escutcheon screws as they will become inaccessible once the Windscreen is fitted. Applying masking tape over the scuttle, the screw holes of each vent were fixed at 220mm in from the Windscreen mount and 80mm from the cockpit, measured to the centre line of the vent.
Multiple holes were then made along the length of both vents and trimmed using the Dremel.
Firstly mount the stanchions via the holes which were pre-cut by GD beware of the weight and tension upon the Windscreen, I had to remove the legs and mount them individually as I was unable to secure a spare hands on the day.
Mark and mount the Windscreen Body Mount which is used to stop the Windscreen flexing and moving. I found that screwing it to the Windscreen, applying masking tape then undertaking a trial fit to mark the correct holes worked easily. Fit and tighten the Windscreen stay and support rod which will be used to mount the mirror.
