I bought new headlight gaskets and I don’t know how to install them.
Is there any advise?
Thanks

I am not familiar with the 1915 Ford Model T headlight design. I do, however, have a friend that is very familiar. I will check with him and see what he has to say about your headlight gasket information need.

Thanks very much!!

The gasket is a dry cord and I'm not sure if it needs something to adhere it the glass.

Thanks for your help.
