. Do not glue replacement vent window in. You can use a bicycle inner tube
rubber as seal. Car show was not giant but pretty darn good. I got to sit
in a "Smart" car, Thanks Brian, Rob brought out a totally cool 59 "California"
he turned down My generous offers to purchase. I had the fun of working on
Erics 4dr Lincoln convert. But then got to drive it fast. I met with GMs
styling guy and he brought out 5 Sema concept type cars. All in all pretty
darned good time. But I like doing My swim ins better. Later Dave the Wave </meta>

It was a truly wonderful day. The only aftermath I'm deal with is my son wanting to live near Dave. Both Dave and son mike got to kick the big red car over during the est drive. I figure with one more beer Dave might have tried for 90mph when it gets really squirrely. Back home now and ordering parts. Looking forward to seeing Mike Israel when he comes for his car. I saw it yesterday and was totally blown away..... almost makes me want to go to the Red top ... its the prettiest white one i've seen in years. Eric

Dave,

The auto glass shops use some rubber stuff that comes in rolls and is
of varying thickness. This stuff may look like a bicycle inner tube
but is special. You spray it with oil and the top coating kind of
melts into a black goo that allows the glass and rubber to slip into
the channel. Once totally in, you cut off the excess with a sharp
knife. The slippery black oily surface dries and turns into the glue
that holds the glass in. It's a really weird process and very messy
but local auto glass shops, even here in California, do it rather well
and for only a few bucks. Be sure to tell them to seat the glass
firmly into the channel. If they don't you will have trouble closing
both the vent windows and the rear side windows.
