Hi George
I'm working on the same problem and I can take some photos in detail this afternoon.
Is there a trick to push the windows cleanly into the rubbers? Despite soapy water and a lot of force, I can't manage to push the window into the point so that it stays in the two side rubbers. At the end you still have to screw in the cross strut.
