Hi All

I wrapped the wooden header on my 1006 and fastened the aluminum piece to the underside and fastened the top bow latches to the wooden header
I "dry fitted" the header assembly to the top of the windshield and it fits nicely

My problem is when i went to "dry fit" the header seal, it seemed like the rubber header seal between the aluminum piece and the windshield was not thick enough. The header latches did not grab the pegs and compress the seal at all. Even when the latches were in their full latched position the header assembly was not fastened down tightly at all.

It seemed like the rubber header seal needed to be a lot thicker

Has anyone else run in to this problem ?

I tried the moss header seal and the header seal from the nocks both with no success

Am i doing something wrong ?
My car is a early long-bridge model
