The small screws wouldn't fit in the windshield. I used a small burr grinder to remove a small bit of the windshield metal...then the screws threaded in ok. The holes were not round. Also use machine oil on the threads of the small screws. You will be taking them in and out half a dozen times. I cut off both driver & pax ends of the supports. The only one you have to do firs is the pax side because it hits the frame. As a precaution, I cut mine in increments of about 1/2". I marked the the place to drill the holes using a 1" piece of grease marker. After I made my mark, I "split" the difference between where the mark was and the center of the post. There usually enough "slop" to make windshield fit. However, the last time I put it on at the paint shop (before paint) it didn't fit quite right so I did go back and enlarge the holes to 9/16" to give me a little more slop. Will locktite the small screws, one at a time, after the windshield is ready for the final install.
