Just posted this in another thread but it look like it is more appropriate here. I plan on doing the silpruf method on the door and side windows which should prevent paint chipping there but does anyone know how do you use this method on the windshield at the bottom where you have to layer up fiberglass onto the windshield so there is no gap between edge of window and canopy?

For the windscreen, I only used silpruf along the top and sides that connect to the cabin top flange.
The base was done per plans with a fiberglass layup.

I shaped a two piece aluminum bottom fairing for the windscreen. I did the windscreen the same procedure as the other windows. I created a bed of Silpruf and then beaded the windscreen in the Silpruf.

Do you, by chance, have any photos of what you did?
