how do i stick the rear window to the metal piece that runs acrossed the bottom of it?
Epoxy or something like it.
how about gasket maker? its all i got
I used a good, waterproof adhesive. Had to use more than I thought to keep it in there. PITA to not use the right stuff or enough of it, then have the window come out and then have to scrape all the old stuff on and re-do it.
Go to a glass hose and buy some of that stuff the use to install winshields. Its that black goop that comes in a tube that fits in a caulk gun.
thanks for the replies, i was wondering what that black stuff i was scraping off the window was
The piece across the bottom of the glass is called the sash. I wouldn't use the urethane, my friend just tried it on his and it just made a big mess and popped apart. I used RTV on mine and rolled the glass up. I didn't roll the window down for 2 days and it worked like a charm.
When I put my tailgate glass in I went to my local chevy dealer and bought the stuff that was originally there. If I remember right, it was a kind of thick, sticky tape that you fold over the bottom of the glass and then you put the glass in the channel. They sold it by the foot, and it was fairly cheap.
Sounds like Butyl Rubber, which is the same stuff they USED to use to hold windshields in. (still used on travel trailers, etc) It doesn't harden, and is sticky as all get out. Comes in a roll like tape, right?
You can buy it at good hardware stores too, and it is pretty cheap.
rtv would be a good bet... and yeah, let it set for as long as u can stand b4 u test it so it sets up really well. 2-3 days oughta do it. I'd leave it a week just cause I'm a geek. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
5-min epoxy worked wonders for me
