I put the rubber on my windshield and mounted the windshield on my jeep.

On the fit, the curved ends could be a little better molded to fit better and several other people have told me the same thing, but overall it fit very close.

I would say it is still a good product and the overall fit/ appearance is good.

Some years ago I purchased a new repo rubber WS/cowl seal from a repuitable supplier for my M38.. It is too ...thick...well made but just has nevere fit properly. I am tired of having to abuse the latches to try and get it to latch or unlatch.

WHO... has one that is NICE...and fits properly?

John has them advertised here (about 1/2 way down the page on the left):

I've not bought one myself, but based on the above posts, it should be pretty good.......

Wbr,
Owen.
