Magnificent work! Although I did notice the slots in the screws are symmetrical on the hinges but very sloppy work on the frame joint with them going in all directions. LOL

Here it is installed . It seems to seal up really well and crank out nice and easy. I haven't put the waterslide decal I have on yet, I think Im going to put it in the back window. we'll see.

Just a tip.

On my army Dodges (same screen) the high clamping pressure makes the rubber stick to the body. If you just undo the catches and push it out the sticking force can easily pull the rubber out of the frame track which you know is a pain in the a...... to put back.

I squirt silicon on the inside of the rubber every few months to stop it sticking to the paint.

It is always much easier and stops the risk of cracking the glass if your passenger helps push the screen up evenly BUT the dickheads are totally unaware of the rubber sticking and when they meet resistance, instead of gently easing the rubber off the paint with their fingers they just push harder leaving the surround pulled out of its track.

Easy, easy and brief your helper!

Good to know Lang, I used silicon spray to install the outer seal. A rub down with that once in while should help.
