Default windshield mod

http://fewstreet.com/2018/06/13/volv...indshield.html

I have an 82' 244, I want to do this for wind noise reasons, leak reasons etc...

so you take off the chrome cover, the 20 or so clips, the windshield glass, the nasty butyl, and you clean the windshield trim area up without messing up your interior or the exterior paint. you also don't cover the bottom trim drain holes right?

what is the exact windshield rubber seal length/thickness I need to do accomplish this?

I want something extra large in size so I have more coverage area on the outside border of the windshield.

A test fit confirmed it fit into the windshield opening perfectly. I think moving from the 0.75” T107B to the 1” T109B trim would have been a good move, to better cover some of the nasty surface where the old trim sat.
I used T109B on my 1980, read your link

Just get a 91-93 windshield and/or seal. VP and CVR sells em new if you want to go through extra trouble.
