Baur windscreen insert - how to get it in??

Hi all,

 

I'm on the final stages of a 20 year restoration of my 2002 Baur. My restorer is having a major issue getting the Baur specific front screen rubber insert to slot in.

Don't suppose anyone here has any magic suggestions as to how to get it in?

Special tools, techniques, brute force, etc...

 

Cheers

Are you referring to the rubber seal for the front windshield? I have a 1972 Baur, and believe that other than the windshield sitting at a more severe angle, the same installation process used with the sedan applys. Am I missing something here? Thanks...

If you're talking about the front windshield lockstrip, I have had far better luck

installing it first, then pulling the whole gasket into it.  The lockstrip holds

the glass, but does nothing for the lip that holds the gasket into the body.

 

There is a tool for lockstrip installation,

but with the 2002, it's not gentle on the strip.

Lisle 47000, or just "Lisle windshield installation tool" got me about six trillion hits.  Few over $15.  (probably 20 quit, wot?)

Then may I reiterate: PUT THE STRIP IN FIRST.

 

Having several cars that have a metal lockstrip.
