    My 1990 Suburban was stolen last year and I recovered it myself. I found them in the process of moving it to a new location but they had already took the bling out and the front windshield. Well I got it back together as well as I could but Im having trouble getting the front winshield installed. My cousin gave me a windshield and a rubber boot. I installed those two but cant get the center rubber piece in. I called a few glass places and they dont want to only put the rubber strip in without doing the glass also. To make thing more fun I recently broke my long side window, I bought a window off ebay and have the same problem with that strip. To make a long story longer :rolleyes: My question is do they sell a tool I can use to install that piece myself or is there another way to do this?
