Hey anyone; I replaced my glass seal this summer, reassembled it, and am now questioning the fit of the gaskets holding the glass to the door frame. After assembly, the metal gaskets angle out from the glass instead of being a level and flush fit. Am I tightening too tightly? The gasket is approximately 1/8 inch thick so I don't think it's too fat. My problem could be how the top and bottom brackets (2 pcs on each side) are orientated for reattachment. Anyone with a cab 50 or similar should be able to answer this. Thanks...
