Thread-topic: reassembling windscreen
I got it together! Woohoo!
All told, it took me about an hour and a half from starting at putting
the gasket around the glass to tightening the last screw. Now I need to
install the exterior seals- the one to the scuttle and the two for the
vent windows. Then comes the fun of installing it on the car, but not
befoe I take the dent out of the top of the scuttle.
One step closer!

The three or four I have assembled were done by doing just what you 
described in your question. Place the gasket on the glass and 
assemble the frame around it. Using some dish-washing liquid to help 
slip everything together and a second pair of hands to get everything 
in alignment before you put the last of the aluminum frame in place 
and tighten the screws. 

The first one of these I did a couple of years ago took WAY too long 
to do!!! 

Good luck!
