Louie mine looks similar to Jim’s except across the top of my trim piece (the wide half of the trim strip) I used the Zenith soft (non structural) rivets, and screws through the bottom of the trim strip to secure the windscreen to the cross tube.

Thank you very difficult to get information on this area

Louie, navigate to the builder resources page and then to the drawing and assembly updates. This is the link to the windshield assembly:
