    I still haven't finished it, can't seem to get the one side fully seated. I do have a heat gun, maybe I'll give that a shot.

    I think the hole could be enlarged somehow... a stone on a die grinder perhaps? Diamond bit? New glass from LMC?

    Not sure if it's not all the way in in the corner or what, but the top is sticking out too far and theres a gap when the glass rotates shut at the top.

    I just started messing with it again the other day and got pissed off and put it up again lol.

    THe top of the inner frame is far from the outer, the seal barely makes contact, and I'm fairly certain it fit OK before. I'm not really sure if I should just manhandle it into shape or if something is wrong.
