Default using Pinchweld Primer To Install Glass

I'm setting my back glass using butyl tape. I have 3M pinchweld primer, and know its supposed to go on the painted channel where the glass sits, but does it go on the glass as well? Should I let it dry before dropping the glass, or do it while its still tacky? Thanks!

You can, it won't hurt anything, actually it should help promote adhesion. Just make sure you keep it no more than a 1/2" from the edge of the glass. you don't want any black showing past the reveal moldings.

we always masked 3/8" to 1/2" in from the edge of the glass before applying the primer. pull the tape off after priming.

X2 what TechNova said. The easiest and cleanest way to do it is to run a piece of 1/2" painters tape around the edge of the windshield with the outer edge along the edge of the glass. The run another piece of 1/2" tape inside of the first piece with the outer edge just touching, but not overlapping the first piece. Then peel off the first piece (outer) that you laid down. You now have a perfect template. Apply primer and peel off the inner piece of tape. You will have a perfectly straight line along the inner edge of the primer in case it can be seen from the outside after the trim is in place.
