On the late model cars you put the windshield in with a rope. You need to get
a new rubber seal ( about 80-90 bucks I think) and put the new weatherstrip
around the new windshield, then wrap a rope around the groove in the outside
of the weatherstrip, squirt a little soapy water on it and pull the rope into
the interior a little at a time, so the groove seats on the lip of the
windshield frame. Not really very hard to do.
