so
arrived the new Lexan window, with gasket and screws already treated with thread locker...
used in addition tiny brass washers 4 mm the hole and 0.5 the thickness between the screws and the glass...
preferred to not install the washers even on the inside (crossed my mind) since in my opinion the gasket would not be squeezed properly...
torqued as specs (5 inch/lbs).... i.e. just snug them in...

for the moment i keep a new machine alum derby cover i bought a week ago...
this is returned brand new anyway...

it could have been a nice component
the idea was good as well
much overpriced... really too much...
for a nonsense they ruined everything, name of the brand included...

it was enough to install simply a tempered glass instead of the cheap Lexan...

too much greedy...

a serious brand...
one who cares about his reputation...
one who have products that worth their high price... instead of sell repair component kits even in Lexan... obviously overpriced like the rest...
would have enforced a recall for all the pieces sold and retrofit them installing a tempered glass

overhere we have a saying that goes like that:
when the Devil make pots... he has to build even the lids
