Re: Rear glass recommendation needed
Agreed. The first thing I did was simply tell them that I had a '72 Chevelle that needed rear glas put in because it was leaking. Didn't lead the witness at all.
The guy seemed to know exactly what to do. Even said he could take the glass out for me and then I could take it away to have all the rust fixed lol.
I explained what it looked like in there, he said the old butyl had dried up and was leaking. He was right. He said he would reinstall with butyl or urethane whichever I preferred, but he prefers urethane. I mentioned I wanted to make sure the height was right and asked if they used a foam dam and urethane and he said yes.
I talked to him the other day to set up the appointment after I told him I got the window out. Told him I would clean up the rust and primer with some epoxy primer. He said that was perfect, he would then put urethane primer over that which is compatible with what the urethane company wants him to use. He is the guy who is actually going to install the glass.
He said he would get the height correct. I've got all new trim clips which will be installed when he gets the car. I'll leave the trim with him too and he can test fit it.
Like I said, we will see what happens. Hopefully he gets the height correct. He says he will. I'll make sure he knows it should be 5/16 high.
I would consider doing it myself with urethane. But I know I'll make a huge mess. This is one of the things I don't mind leaving to a professional. And he's the only glass installer that would touch my car in this area that I have found so far. So, not many choices.
