LM vent window repair
Posted by: scottymac ()

I'm disassembling a pair of lm vent windows so the frames can be replated, if California Corvairs doesn't have a nice pair. After about two hours of gentle prying, the Soft Ray glass came out, can anyone recommend a product to install between the frame and glass when I'm ready to reassemble?

Search for glass setting tape, should be easy to find online.

Bicycle inner tube rubber may work. I used it inside my late model quarter window weather strip, between the quarter window and door glass. I wet it with glass cleaner, slipped the weatherstrip in place then trimmed the excess rubber with a razor blade. I found that Clarks seal material easily torn when installing the weather strip or frame.

Did you WET it with a solvent / WD40, etc? That softens it...then evaporates.
