I stole the pic from some Russian website. I don't have it in stock.
Probably just the 1/4" bead.



Although I don't see any compelling reason to spend the same money on less material, it stretches readily into any diameter bead you want easily.

Yes - the newer style flush mount trim.

On butyl clean up - I have a couple of contacts that say that kerosene makes an absolute mess of it; others who say kerosene is the way to go. Any additional thoughts on this based on actual experience?

Sharp stick, kerosene & rags followed with lacquer thinner to de-oil the surface.

I'm discovering that citrus power Goo Gone makes short work of the butyl with a more pleasant smell. As with kerosene, de-oiling will be required. Also seeing that plastic trim removal tool works pretty as scraper. May be sacrificial however...

Have fun with that. I spent a few hours yesterday removing old butyl from the front and rear window trim of my coupe. It was messy. Have plenty of gloves on hand.

Should take about 17¢ worth of time if you can find a nice hardwood stick to carve 99% of it out of the channel in the first pass.

I just bought a new windshield cash and carry. Was told Pilkington is dropping the older Volvo stuff, but some will be added to its "classic glass" category along with a 50-100% price increase since its so special now.

The new glass I got had the rectangular slot in the middle-bottom for the OE spacer - never had this before - there are 2 other spacers, one at each end also. These are still available OE for $1+ ea, but last check, I got the last center and 2/3 of the last ends in the Empire, Inc. Will back order now but am told they are still available. I can find the PNs if anyone wants them.

I think my plastic trim tool will do the same trick. However, much too soft/goopy for it to come out "in the first pass".....perhaps the temp/humidity has something to do with it.

It gets sticky when it's warm, that picture was taken in 60º weather.

Kinda thought so - I'm at about 74F with the A/C on in the garage and this stuff is pretty "roapy".

We're sort of in the same boat -- but different berths. You need one more for 40. I've only had one.

Redwood Chair - thanks for counsel on a piece of wood - I cut a piece of 90-degree trim at a 45 degree angle and wiped it liberally with Goo Gone. Worked beautifully -- just took time because of the tacky factor. The plastic tools are working better for the second pass -- getting as much off as possible before the tedious task of Goo Gone and rags. Good news - not a spec of corrosion anywhere - just pristine original paint and spot welds. Should all clean up like the picture at the bottom. Can anyone counsel me on where to find the clip that goes in the middle of the A-pillar that the interior trim piece slides into? I'm missing the driver's side one -- don't know what it looks like....

And a tip for anyone trying this that's really picky --- tape up the cowl opening and the hood/fender seams to avoid a BUNCH of debris ending up down in there. A bit surprised that I thought that one through ahead of time.

Wife suggested I use the sticky side of duct tape to try and pull the butyl residue off - worked beautifully. So, wooden tool first; duct tape second; Goo Gone third.

Don't forget to primer both the metal and the glass. That is very clean. I would wipe it all down with rubbing alcohol before you apply anything. Dries fast and no residue.

Hard to know what the best approach is here. I've found multiple posts that begin "I've been a glass installer for 10-15-20-25 years and....." Some of them say use a primer with butyl/ribbon; some say clean, smooth, dry. No question with urethane -- primer on both surfaces. Lack of clarity on need for primer with butyl.
