I put a ProSource windshield + Classic Alfa seal in my Duetto a few years ago. It just went in, with no futzing around needed. My installer did use black sealant at the base of the gasket, where it fits over the clips - rainwater would certainly come in around the clips without sealant. I don't think he applied any sealant between the glass and gasket.
It was a ProSource product and I am quite happy with it even though I needed to jump through a couple extra hoops to make it work.

I think that is a "fits well" for reproduction parts. "Fits horribly" or "doesn't fit at all" is all too common with reproduction stuff. Actually, "isn't correct" is my usual complaint.

FYI, Here is the e-mail from Richard for anyone else that is looking for a Series 1 windshield now:

We show those on order Ira from FYG in the near future so we will get confirmation in the coming weeks. The eta is probably later in the Fall. I know they will be clear for $254. If interested I would contact us by Sept. I am now part of Mygrant Glass, the largest distributor of automotive glass in the USA.

Thanks,

Richard
