yes it is a glass setting tape. Don't know about the oil thing, never used oil. Can get tape at any glass shop. Some use black urethane windshield glue but that is so messy. Put tape around glass and tape in place. Carefully tap on metal trim with a rubber hammer and trim off excess with a razor blade when done.

Of course you have to have the right glass thickness so be careful. You have to "tap" it on a lot harder than I would have thought I know that!

I love those metal framed windows.

Personally there is no way I would put oil on it, oil doesn't leave, it would cause problems down the road as far as I am concerned. There are different products on the market used for that, I don't know a name and am wracking my brain but can't think of a name. I know the best that ever existed was called "Release agent" by 3M but it is no longer available do to EPA issues.

But even soap and water is a better way to go, you want something that evaporates once it's in.

I have used ATF as a lubricant but you do not have to use much.
