Windshield Installation Tips?

I've removed the windshield and back glass in order to replace the weatherstripping. Anyone got any trips or tricks for putting them back in? All help appreciated.

Tip #1 - Have someone else do it !!

Seriously, take it to a professional glass installer. It is not an easy task that takes a minimum of two people and a hefty dose of Prozac..

RE: Windshield Installation Tips?

Before you go to a professional to install your glass, ask them if they have ever installed glass on your model/year of truck. Also, ask for references (for your model/year, if possible).

A confident business person will say that he/she can install anything. Some can and some can't - I seen them make all sorts of excuses about why they could not properly install a '54 windshield that has the stainless inserts.

I know this is an older post but If it is a split windshield it is a simple task. Use a piece of strong cord to pull the rubber into position after laying in the glass.
