Default windshield trim?

does the windshield on 92-99 models have trim at the bottom or does it just terminate as glass on top of the cowl? Also, isn't it supposed to sit squarely on both of the bump-stops?

There are differently shaped bump stops placed farther out than those, right over the vents on the cowl. I'm looking at a windshield that has just been replaced and it is sitting on the bump stop on the passenger side but it is up 1/2 inch from the one on the driver'* side. The glass doesn't appear to be crooked from head-on, but it just looks like it should sit on the other stop too. I only noticed because when I drove it after getting the windshield replaced it seemed like there was more engine noise coming in than before and I got out and inspected the install... I had the installer come back and run some black polyurethane at the bottom edge of the glass just to be sure wind wasn't getting thru a bubble in the glue or something. sorry i tend to babble....

Those stops should adjust.
