Hi,

 

Have just replaced the windscreen frame on a rebuild project and have problems with the center fixing.

 

Both the main fixing legs are bolted tight to the bracket inside the wing. the 2 outside fixing plates are almost touching the top of the dash.

 

But the center one has a large gap between the bracket and the dash, about 3/8", haven't tightened the center bolt too tight as didn't want to bend the bracket.

 

Any ideas.

 

Thanks

 

Dave

Hi Dave,

              release the two main legs and get the three dash top screws in and screwed a fair way in. Then do the legs.

Ah OK thanks, sounds like I've done it the wrong way round.

Question:
When were the TR Register’s Articles of Association changed to include a “shared “ membership?
