Very nice Mike!

Did you cover the white face gauges in the thread?

Yeah but don't ask me what page it's on. I could keep track of where everything was until I got into the 20's.

Edit: Here is the white face gauge post.

Cowl Seal Installation

Installation of the cowl seal was a bit of work. I figured it needed to be sealed to the windshield frame first. So I bought a tube of the clear silicone and went to town. I basically started at one end and worked my way down two bolt holes at a time. I started by applying silicone to the driver's side then attached with the end screw.


I'd apply silicone down to the next hole and go back to install the previous screw.


I just kept working my way down until the entire seal was attached to the bottom of the windshield frame.


Once that was done I pulled the windshield up so there would be a little tension on the seal to help hold it in place and gave it 24 hours for the silicone to cure.

Lookind good mike, can't wait to see it on the road.

Your going to have to take it on a nation wide tour so we can all see it in person. Make shure you pack enough home brew and peppers so we can all try that stuff as well.

Yeah it looks fine. It should be secured and water proofed on the bottom of the windshield frame. I'll fold it back and finish off the lower edge when I tighten the windshield frame into place.

I do have a complaint that the replacement seal is too thick and too hard of rubber to fit the same as the factory seal. It takes a lot more force to get the windshield back to the correct angle.

Looks like it ought to do the job. The tape idea should save you some on clean up too.

The tape did help a bit with clean up. When I went to fold the windshield back into place, the seal was so thick it was nearly impossible to get it all the way back. I compared it to the stock seal and decided that I needed to trim parts of the seal to release some of the tension. So I removed a little material from both ends and the center section.


As you pull the windshield into place you can see how it tries to roll the front lip of the seal.


You can see it caught on the back side so just push it into place with your fingers.


The entire seal edge is now where it needs to be.


Go back to the front and push on the seal to make sure it is tight against the frame.


I added the tape to the front for easier cleanup.


Once the seal was in place I added a bead of silicone along the inner lower sealing edge.


At this point I ran into a problem. When the seal was dry, I could fold the windshield back and the seal would compress and stay in place. Once I added the wet silicone and tried to pull the windshield back, the now slippery rubber seal would try to push out the front because it is under so much tension. So I had to leave the windshield in a half folded back position so the siliconed seal would stay under tension in the correct location and wait for it to cure. At this point I also took the top outer lip of the seal and folded it back enough to get the nozzle tip in there and laid a nice bead of silicone along the entire edge of the seal lip. I smoothed that out and pulled off the tape for that edge. I was waiting a few more minutes before removing the tape from the bottom edge.

I believe the flange of the seal should cover the frame and tub like it does in the far right of the photo.

You are correct. That's why I showed that picture and what to look for and how to fix it in the following two photos.
