Hey Guys,

I have a NOS 68-70 B hardtop windsheld gasket and it has some wrinkles in it. Specifically where it goes between the dash and windshield it doesn't want to lay flat. Any suggestions for getting it to "relax" and lay correctly?

Thanks in advance!

Put it in the sun , let it heat up and gently work it by hand.

Back before you could buy a new gasket, and nos were gone, we would coat them with goop handcleaner and lay them flat wrapped in plastic. I was told the lanolin in the goop conditioned the rubber, it always worked for me. I would try it on an area that you do not see first just to see that there is no bad reaction.
