Its not an inner and an outer, its a main seal and a locking strip, they come as a pair. Forget about installing them without the special tool, which costs about 20 bucks and is available from Snap-On/Blue Point.

Also can't be done (locking strip) with cage on per 2 glass shop's I took it to. Glass shop suggested flipping it over and puting the locking strip on the inside where it is accessable (with headliner removed) made total sense and seal looks like it would work just fine turned over.

I just did the seals for the alpine windows on a fiberglass top. The seals from Rover (the only ones they have) didn't work since they seem to be setup for the aluminum top. I used seals from JC Whittney that supportedthe 1/8 inch thickness of the fiberglass top. We first put the seal around the top, then put the glass in and finally the locking piece. We used lots of dish soap and did do the locking piece on the outside. I didn't have the snapon tool so instead we threaded the locking strip through the end of a 8mm box end slid it into the locking gap, slid it along openingthe gap as we tucked the locking strip in with a finger.. went pretty quickly. Alsolocked a pair of vicegrips to the boxend wrench to have a bit more to hold onto.

I took my truck in to get some ghetto tint. I had a new windshield seal and new alpine window seals. The show said no problem. Of course when I came back later they didn't do either. They wouldnt touch the windshield to replace the seal as it is heated and were convinced it would break. As for the alpine seals they said the cage was in the way. I have the headliner out now but I don't think it matters. I need a rover guy who can work around the cage. I guess I will save it for another time.

My heated windshield broke when I took it off. It wasn't cheap to replace it.

That reminds me of the good old warranty days when my alpine windows started leaking on the fiberglass hardtop. I took it in to the dealer and asked if they could add some sealant or new gaskets..
They called me a couple hours later and said it was ready. When I asked what they had done, they said they put on a new hardtop..it was easier than resealing the glass... lol...
That was in 1995. I guess hardtops were plentiful then.....
