    The fiber top is not yet glued to the body, so still time to install the glass to the frame. Thanks for the excellent hint. Much appreciated...

    Just out of curiosity: Do I need to install the final windshield with glass or can I use another modified S2 one. Not sure how much they actually differ in terms of dimensions. Would hate to get my already rechromed frame scratched in the workshop...

    I would think you're safe without the windscreen glass and just use the brass frame to set the fiberglass shell. Plus you might consider including the weather striping too because it adds to the height.
    You know the Lemans windscreen is different than a S-II. The difference is the dual hold down studs on the left & right sides. If you set a S-II w/s in place and attach the fiber shell on top of it.....that w/s will never come out because the studs hold it from tilting out...LoL!

    I'm well aware about the S2 and HLM frames differences, thanks. However any S2 frame can be converted into an HLM one if you know what to modify. Just was considering whether the frames have dimensional variations and whether the glass installed on top makes a difference or not. Anyhow will check it again deeply...
