Re: Split screen windscreen fitting

just had a visit from an experienced windscreen fitter and he is suspecting that the frame is not open enough to house the glass and rubber altogether. One solution is jacking up for some clearance ouch!!

Split screen windscreen fitting

Could someone please advise what would the dummy centre piece be like when fitting the split screen windscreen? Is it a piece of wood held by bolts and rubber washers? Any help greatly appreciated
