37 Cadillac Windshield

Alright, I have the new glass and the new rubber. Now the problem; the windshield has a chrome strip around the opening lip, therefore the window is held in place from the inside by the trim ring alone. The rubber does not have a lip which goes over the medal lip to seal out the weather. So, is the rubber pressed up against the medal by the trim ring enough to keep out the weather, or should I put something, like glue, in there to seal it.

Thanks Rick

I don't know how to post pictures here so I put a couple in my project journal. In the pictures you can see the chrome trim ring which goes around the window opening and covers the pinch weld. From the inside you can see where the window, wrapped in rubber, butts up the the trim piece, and is then held in place by the interior trim molding. The instructions say to put a bead of sealant on the interior then the window (wrapped in rubber) and finally the trim molding. What I don't know, is what kind of sealant to use.

Thanks Rick

im not real sure what kind of sealant to use best bet would be to call the place where you got the instructions
the glass is in rubber that goes from the inside?

i would think clear silicone would work the outside crime is just ornamental ... the inside molding is the one holding the glass ... right?can you post a pic of the glass w/ the gasket and 1 w/ the gasket alone in you journal

don't feel bad i cant post pics either
something to do w/size and bla bla yadda yadda im still trying to down size my pixelsor something idunno puters baffle me reading up on them i need a new pc but the one i want to have built is about $1200. ouch
ill check back w/ you tomorrow

Working on a 41 cad series 61 as a street rod. Recently removed the windsheild, chrome and mouldings like you did. I plan on using weatherstrip cement or possibly clear silicone on the install. I'm not to worried about rust, I live in a dry climate. Your project journal looks great!

Weatherstrip adhesive sounds like it might work. I was kind of thinking of using it. Has anyone else used it for this application before?

Rob, it will be a while before I can get the pictures of the window and rubber posted.

Yes, i was thinking of the yellow stuff. (I call it gorilla snot also.) Problem with that stuff is it is so messy. I have yet to use it w/o getting strings of yellow coming off in at least one area. Plus, the yellow probably will show, so I dont think that's a good choice. Did not know it came in black. my vote= clear silicone as first choice, black GS as second. Good luck

Shield Seal

Use 3M bedding and sealing compound,it can be purchased localy and will not promote corrosion like silicone will.
it is also dry rag clean up and won't harm the chrome or painted finish.

I'm off-topic here, but you can use 'mogrify' to resize images. It's a part of Image Magick ( http://imagemagick.org ), which is free. You could also use Gimp ( http://www.gimp.org ), which is also free. Gimp uses a toolset very similar to Photoshop, in case you're used to that. Image Magick and Gimp work on all major operating systems.
