Installing my windshield on my 54 210, and it appears one of the upper corner pieces may be slightly twisted, as it is pulling the gasket off the windshield. Any harm in using a little silicon to keep the gasket on the glass?

Make sure you use rubber washers on the stainless trim both out side and inside! I had a windshield leak coming from the bolts! Put rubber washers on the inside also and it pretty much stopped my leak! Just a hint!!!!!
