    Hole in Series Windscreen Frame

    The two holes at the top of a series windscreen frame (see red circle in pic stolen from web) - are these supposed to be blocked off?

    As far as I can see they would let water in that runs off the roof and this would run in the frame until it finds an outlet somewhere?

    Anyone got the low down on filling or not filling these holes?

    The holes were probably drains from the galvanising process, you let the zinc in and have to let it out again.
    With a hardtop there's a seal that sits over the top of the windscreen so no water should get in. Not sure about a canopy.

    No need to fill them in , they are covered over by the sharks tooth frame on a soft top.

    The seal not cover the hole on either side of top of screen. So on my hard top they are open and frame gets a lot of water in when rains.

    might fill them then

    Just had a look at a Series III and the seal covers the holes. Is the seal fitted correctly on yours ?

    Filling them in shouldn't be an issue.

    My seal that I installed is on the flange that has the holes for the bolts to the roof.

    That is on the flange behind where the two holes are.

    the surface with the two holes has nothing on it.

    i did think at the time it was a fat seal for where I put it!

    I think I wil seam seal fill the two holes - hopefully no more hot water on feet in summer.
