16.1 - MK2 Windshield Chrome Installation ( George Camp,  July 31, 2005 )

George Camp writes on July 21,2005

With your fresh gasket and glass installed (make sure gasket is
as flush with body outer edge as possible) place chrome on top of
gasket and position both parts (cover clips off) so that the position
looks good. Using some tape secure the chrome to the glass/paint
or what ever you can. Using some small screws secure the chrome
strip to the gasket(make damn sure you do not go into the glass
with any force). Once this is satisfactory get rid of any tools made
of metal. Using a plastic glass tool or a good substitute work the
chrome into the inner lip of the gasket. You may have to move the
screws a time or two until you are happy. When you work the lower
corner on each side you will see why you do not want to use metal.
Continue to work the strips into the inner lip until you have completed
the task. When all is well remove the screws and clip on the finisher
clips. Optional---I then carefully tape the edge of the chrome and the
edge of the paint. I take a sealer called ultra black (dries to a gasket finish)
and fill the void between the chrome and paint. Some areas little
goes in but other areas may use up to a quarter inch. This perfects the seal
and closes the gaps. If done carefully NO one will notice. Best of
luck and be patient as the chrome may have come off the car but
the gasket is new.
