I purchased safety glass for the rear window, as well as a new gasket. I used the 3M "black super weathership and gasket adhesive" and was very disappointed in it. The adhesive stuck very well to the glass and body, but not to the rubber. Do you guys know of a better product? Thanks.
Jim I use Loctite PL-S30 on the closed cars rear window. It will adhere to just about anything and remains soft. It can also be cut with a razor blade if the window needs to be removed. Clean up with mineral spirits after install and you won't see a trace of it. Works good.
I have a '22 Coupe that I replaced the small rear oval window in. I used clear silicon caulk and I taped around my window and body panels with painters tape to keep it off the glass and body. This way you can control the size of the bead and work it in the crack with your finger. As soon as your done pushing the caulk in the groove remove the tape.
As I rebuilt the car I did the same on all body seams before installing the trim to help seal the body to help prevent water getting in on the upholstery.
Dennis, with silicone in the body seams, wasn't there a problem with painting? (All the car painters I know hates silicone)
All my body panels were primed and then assembled. The seams where I used silicone were taped off to about 1/8th wide so it would be under the trim mouldings. The trim moulding was installed and the car was painted. No silicone was exposed. As an added measure the interior seams were sealed also, then the upholstery was installed. My goal was to keep water from seeping in on the interior.
