(Is that specific enough Jerry Van??)
When it rains, I've got a bit of a leak between the bottom of the windshield and the top of the firewall/dashboard on my 1914.
Anyone else have this problem and is there some sort of rubber strip that can be put in that space?
Thanks in advance.
Good one Marty :-)
Marty...my '13 came with a very thin rubbery strip, self adheshion, typically bought at a big box hardware store, in the weatherstripping department. That'll do the trick.
The windshield frame sits on the top of the screw heads (french head screws) which hold the brass trim molding onto the firewall. As a result there is a small gap between the molding and the frame.
Your leak is Factory Supplied Original Equipment.
Tim's suggestion is valid. Loosen the clamps which hold the frame to the firewall and place a strip if rubber or similar material between the two. It will be about the best that you can do. A narrow strip of inner tube may almost look period correct! Good lock with your project. Bill
Stop driving in the rain !
I used 3M auto body strip caulk on my 14. set the windshield in it, clean off, then wipe the seam with grease and wax remover. You will hardly notice it and it will never leak again. You can also seal the coil box with it.
Great suggestions!!! Thanks guys.
I get wet when I drive in the rain, too. I tried a rubber strip on the bottom of the windshield, but it didn't seem to help much. :-)
