You drill 4 holes in the top and they send a drilling guide.  It was easy.

Thanks for the insight!!! Found that 150 shims are the same part# at a reduced price......

 
Got my one piece windshield from LP Aero, took some time to fit, did a video on the install. You can find it on my website.
   Thanks

McFarlane for gear shims and I used Great Lakes Aero Products for all my glass.  Got the grey tint one-piece windshield (removes the center strap), grey 2” bubble windows, and grey rear windows.  All fit very well with minimal to no trimming.

Good luck!
