Who's '33-'34 sedan windshield frame gasket works best

Been fighting with a Vintique '33-'34, fits the frame OK; but is too stiff to fit the frame into the car.
Wondering who's gasket others have used and if they had better results.

Re: Drum / hub retainer

While original safety hubs turn up from time to time on the auction place; @SUHRsc idea in the previous post looks good and not too tough to make.

Re: Pulling rear hub and axle shaft assembly on 50 woodie
