1979 CXX16SS Windshield Install Help
« on: January 08, 2020, 10:07:02 AM »
Ok so I'm gathering the parts to install it. Whats the order of parts to install?
I know the gasket goes on the bottom and is sandwiched between the hull and lower edge of windshield, but does anything go between the windshield and the boat hull under the bolt holes? Reasoning would be so water doesn't get through there.
I believe the nylon washers go on top of the windshield and under the screws.

I also didn't see a spec for the screws at the bottom of the windshield post.

And by design, does this really trap water at the bottom edge inside like it seems it will?

Thanks in advance as always.

So nobody can tell me the order of the fasteners that attach the windshield to the hull?
Does a rubber washer go between windshield and hull?
Does the nylon washer go between the screw head and the windshield?

I believe Frank M. answered your question on one of the FB groups.
I don't own a CVX style boat so can't say for sure how it fits.
I do know the " P " shaped gaskets is one piece and there aren't any drain hole in deck.

my 87 was , from deck up, gasket, windshield, rubber washer, screw.  windshield was sandwiched between rubber gasket and rubber washers.  Do go too tight, just snug. don't want to stress crack the holes in windshield.  Also the "P" was tight up against the leading outside edge of the windshield , and the screws went through the flat part of gasket.

I didn't see that anywhere.

I have the P gasket, just not any hardware. Need to know,. besides the screws and nuts, how to install it and what to get.

Yes I understand that. How about the seals under the windshield and screw head?

Is it safe to assume the drawings are exaggerated?  I would think the windshield and hull surfaces where nearly parallel.

Thanks for the help everyone, I got it on and found some neat screw covers that are brown. The windshield (from sitting) had changed shape a bit so it required some tugging and pushing to get all the screws in, but they all lined up!

And of course I bought too much hardware and now have an extra set of the truss screws, nuts, washers, and cool caps...

As a by-product I now have a set of cut down posts I don't need anymore. Maybe someone could use them.

Re: 1979 CXX16SS Windshield Install Help - Blind screws?
« Reply #12 on: January 28, 2020, 10:50:20 AM »
Ok so new dilemma, what have people done with the blind holes (4 of them)?
  • Use regular screws that screw into the fiberglass?
  • Get longer machine screws and just go through the supports?

Its tight with all the others but the seal isn't totally secure in these areas.

Thanks

From my experience, the seal shouldn't be absolute, there needs to be a way for water to escape.   Every new to me Glastron has needed some hosing out in this area as well,  as the area traps dirt and such.  Looks great in the pictures.

I was almost thinking of cutting the seal so there were opening about 1/8" in the low spots.

Never thought about it, but maybe a few small grooves would help?  Probably wouldn't cut it though, I'd be afraid as it aged, it would shrink apart
