Re: questions installing a windshield...

put the rubber onto the window then drop the bottom edge of the rubber onto the winshield frame.

then you can use you fingers to pick and pull the rubber through, working your way around the window from one side to the other.


the rope trick works by using a very thin bit of rope (the cheap clothes line crap you get at a super market will do) and wrapping it around the window in the groove of the rubber seal.

again drop the bottom into the windshield frame. while pushing the glass gently inwards begin to pull the rope. again starting from one side and working your way around the window.


hope this makes sense and helps you out.



Painted a few cars and replaced many windows in various cars. those are the two easiest ways to get the job done. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: questions installing a windshield...

Taken from a previous post, I couldn't have said it any better....

</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
Not a very complicated procedure. Put your new gasket around the new glass. Using a solution of dish washing detergent and very warm water, spray (or sprinkle) soapy water around your clean windshield opening.

Using a length of smooth rope, or medium gauge jacketed wire, loop around the new gasket IN the channel that the body grabs, with the overlap directly centered on the top. Spray the entire diameter of windshield with your warm (as warm as you can stand) soapy solution.

Place your wet dripping windshield assembly onto the windshield frame. Have an assistant hold the new glass and gasket in place, and you sit inside your truck and SLOWLY pull the cord/wire directly towards you. Work from one side, all the way around. The idea is to have the cord gently pull the lip that grabs the body into place. Warm water helps the rubber become more pliable, and the soap when dry will not harm anything, but greatly eases the stress of pulling rubber against metal.

Hope this helps

For all appearances it looks just like a regular windshield. Unless they "knock' on it, or press against it they prolly won't even notice it.
