v butt windshield

Im having the glass cut for my v butt windshield on monday. Any suggestions on which rubber trim I should use? It for my 39 GMC using the outer lip. Also, on the new cars they have the black paint (?) on the inside to hide some areas. Can any glass company do this or is there a product I can get to do this. THANKS

I think RB's or chevy of the 40's sell the V-butt gaskets for these trucks. Not for sure. Go to any reputable auto glass shop and ask them about the inside blacking agent. It's fritz something. Comes in a stick style and you break it ( like a glow stick) and the swab end becomes wet and it will have a guide to place over the stick. Just run it around the glass and your ready to go.

Try Steele Rubber Products. I know they have rubber mouldings for just about everything.

The usual method is use the stock type rubber gasket W/ the center rubber bar cut out. I suggest making some 1/4" thick Masonite windows and fit the gasket and wood inserts in the car to make sure it all works. One trick I use for a prefect joint is to fit the wood windows in with a small gap between them. Run a piece of masking tape along the joint on the inside then fill the crack w/ Bondo. Once the Bondo sets, carve it to shape then run a single edge razor blade down the V-peak whivch guarantees a perfect joint. Do this before the Bondo gets too hard! Ask the glass shop to cut and grind the glass @ the V-joint to the same angle that the razor cut yielded and the joint is almost invisible when installed and siliconed.
