    Hey guys, I am replacing the side window tracks on my '72 K5 and am finding the rubber gaskets they sell you new fill the gap but don't really hold the window glass firmly in place. Hate to use Gorilla Glue on it in case it needs replacement someday. Any recommendations? IMG_0278.jpeg IMG_0279.jpeg IMG_0278.jpeg IMG_0279.jpeg

    I think you use glass setting tape? I believe it comes in different thicknesses, maybe what you have is not thick enough?

    This guy is putting some on around the 5:50 mark or you could take it to a local glass shop.

    Thanks for the video! I knew someone here would have an answer. Looking for glass setting tape now. Thanks for helping me out!

    Thanks, Wes! I assume the adhesive goes on both sides of the rubber tape or gasket. But I couldn't find a reference to which material the primer gets applied to. Am guessing it goes on the glass...
