Setting Model A windshield

I have a 28 Model A coupe that I am putting in a new windshield. I bought the windshield setting material and I am leery about trying to install the glass with the new setting material. It gets formed into a U shape and pushed into the channel than the glass gets wedged into it. I sure don't want to force the glass into the setting material because I will be P____d if it cracks. Anyone know an easy way to do it? What about just using the new butyl material to set the glass?

Thanks - Jerry
