I just wanted to point out that the windshield mounting screws to the Madstad bracket are very easy to over tighten. The bracket has rubber bumpers that go between the windshield and the mounting surface. The gap between them will allow the windshield to flex a bit as you tighten. DON'T EXPECT TO BOTTOM OUT THE SCREWS. The instructions tell you not to over tighten, but it's easy to do. After what I thought was a successful install last night, I went in the garage to find two stars on the windshield where it flexed around the bumpers between the screws. I think screw spacers or a rubber gasket the length of the bracket would be a better alternative, but the damage is already done. Hopefully this may prevent somebody from doing the same.
