Windshield frame seal installation

Similar experience here. I've done a few searches for replacement pics or vids and have not found any - except a few general descriptions.

So..we're gonna do a full video of the process - step by step this week (10/15/16) of a windshield removal, cleanup, and installation of the seal.

Will also do a short video of the removal, refurb/cleanup and re-installation of the window regulator assembly.

The overall process will be documented on the http://www.flyingtigertransport.com site and linked to their Youtube vids.

Windshield Seal - Prep and Installation video- Youtube.

Here's the direct link to our removal and replacement of the WM300 DODGE Power Wagon windshield seal.

It took a bit of additional contact cement to get the corners to set. Temperature and humidity was ag'n us.

The VPW seal fit perfect - as long as you dont' stretch it out.

We did not show the re-installation because it was a bit of an ordeal to get the new alignment with those pesky hinge adjustments. Also, I never realized how much I could cuss on video! But we finally got it done with Chaz pressing in on the base of the window at the regulator attachment point. Probably would have helped if we heated up the rubber with a hair dryer a bit to make it more pliable in the cold weather.

Done now, with no leaking. We also removed and readjusted the center regulator and will post more on that as a Project on www.flyingtigertransport.com site.
