[Healeys] 100 Windscreen Asseembly

FWIW in my experience 100 windshields are a real PITA.
The corner bracket sets sold by the usual suspects are pitiful which does
not help matters.
You need to install spacers, as you asked, between the frame and the
glazing rubber. Determine the required thickness by measuring. I use
hardwood strips about 1 1/2" long.
The glazing rubber is meant to be coated with engine oil during
installation which is meant to make it swell to tighten things up.
Take your time and be patient.
IMHO it is one of the most difficult parts of a 100 restoration
particularly if the components are not an original set.
