I'm about done with my new dash and am ready to re-install it along with the windshield. Is there a rubber or felt gasket that goes between the brass trim around the dash and the windshield bottom? When I took the windshield off, there was a very old and worn felt-like material stuck to the brass trim, which practically fell off on it's own. I gently scraped the rest off and cleaned away all the black paint someone put over the brass trim. Now that I'm about to put it all back together, I'm wondering if this gasket material is supposed to be there or if some previous owner installed it. Any suggestions?

No. There should be nothing. No felt, no rubber, no gasket. The steel clamps hold the windshield frame in place securely.
