I bought mine from Morris 4x4. I think it is a Crown. It installed perfectly. I'm gonna have to go back and fill the rusted out portions of my winshield/cowl with silicone to keep it from leaking all together though.

When I put my new gasket in, it had expanded and was "too thick" so it seemed. After it was secured to the bottom of the windshield frame, I loosely installed the hold down hardware on each end. I had to pull the frame back/down to get it where it should of been. I used ratchet straps hooked to the top corners of the frame on one end and the seat frame on the other. I slowly compressed the frame back down until it was aligned with the hold down. I checked the angle with my hard doors to ensure it was correct. I then tightened down my hold down hardware. I have yet to fold it back forward....

After it was all tied down, I ran a small bead of black silicone along the outside to seal the seal to the frame. To date I have not had any leaks where my feet used to get wet every time it rained.
