2 how did you make the hydraulics work.

Sorry martin 172 was posting at the same time, by putting the wedge under the body seal does that not create a gap under the body to seal rubber? do you then just pump lots of sealer in after its fixed down in place to fill any gaps?

windscreen frame to body rubber

Just in the process of changing screen rubber and body to frame rubber.
Looking for advice on rubber wedges. At what stage do they go in, between which part of the body to frame rubber?
Thanks Jay.
