I've been leaking water for a while under the dash so I ordered and replaced the rubber gasket between the windshield and the tub. Thankfully the windshield torx came out easy and i got the windshield dropped quickly. No rust or issues at all... I remove the old and installed the new weather stripping (from q-tec) and pulled the windshield up after screwing the gasket in. Once the windshield was wrestled back into place and bolted back to the bars I noticed there is a bit of a lip on the new gasket. It sits close to the frame but not exactly flush. Almost as if I had to push it in even though its screwed into place... Do I need to drop it again and try to push it in? Or is this how it's supposed to be?
Typical /f12 Hooligan
Pictures of the affected area would help.

Like I said, its screwed in at all points and this just seems to be how it fits. Not sure how I would get it flush. Thoughts?
I had the same issue when I installed mine from Q-tec. I had to have my son help by pushing the gasket it as I pulled back the window. It didn't fully seat but it's a lot better. I'll take a pic shortly and post.
