IIRC, the discussion about 'too thick' rubber was for the U-channel 
seal, but I may not RC.  The glazing rubber we got from Moss years ago 
seemed to be the correct thickness.  I don't recall using a mallet or 
much force at all, nor do I recall using any lubrication, but it was a 
long time ago.

Did you get the Triplex windshield, or the cheaper one?  There may be 
some issues with thickness between the two.  We were able to reuse the 
windshield that came with the car--I spent a day polishing out wiper 
scratches--and AFAIK it was original, or an OEM replacement.
