Today, we have a quick post about windshield installation in our 65 HiPo Mustang Project.
We sell lots of windshield rubber weatherstrips
, but we are often asked about proper installation. While this is certainly not the most detailed article about 65-68 Mustang Windshield installation, it may give you an idea as to what is involved.
|ST-46 Bedding and Glazing Compound Sealer bead is applied to the body on the windshield "frame" area.|
|Sealer is also applied between the glass at the windhield weatherstrip.|
|Winshield Weatherstrip Rubber is "pulled in" with a rope. Actually a small string was used so most of the sealer stayed in place. Yes, it is still somewhat of a mess.|
The very first thing to keep in mind when installing a Mustang Windshield in a 1965-68 Mustang is the fact that the rubber or weatherstrip must be sealed between the glass and the weatherstrip and between the weatherstrip and the body of the car. If this is not done, and done well, it will leak. Always keep in mind that job of the rubber weatherstrip is to hold the glass in. It actually does not do the sealing.

Very nice, thanks for the info. Is this the way it would have been done on the assembly line?
The car is looking good, will you have it ready for me by Christmas? :-)
A similar, but more automated, process would have probably been used on the assembly line.
Hopefully, the car will be completed by late winter or very early spring.
