    Windshield Rubber?

    Post by SIX-FO' on Fri Jun 19, 2009 9:53 pm

    Well today somebody kicked a basketball at my windshield and it cracked all over the place. I know thats just a flat piece of glass and any glass shop can cut it, but what about the windshield rubber? Will the glass shop be able to find a replacement? Are these reproduced? Are there other chevy modles that used similar rubber? Thanks,

    -Ryan

    I wasnt there when it happened and of coarse I cant find the kid that did it. Now that I am no longer in a fit of rage I have realized that I needed a new windshield anaway. It had lots of little rock chips and there is overspray from when they painted it. The gasket leaks and is cracked all over the place. Like Don said, Its times like these Im glad to be a flat glass owner!

    And a nice piece of shaded glass would be nice,,,,,I took a cracked one and traced it on a couple of pieces of construction paper taped together and made a pattern that the glass company used to cut of a piece of glass.

    I ordered a gasket from Arrowhead Truck parts, hope to see how that ends up working this coming week, was about 34$. still trying to decide whether or not to swap the tinted window out of the gray van with the clear one that was in the "project".

    Joe, I found(in OH) a used tinted windshield for the CA 65. It looks great in it (well alot better than none) It wasn't that hard to do. I got my gasket from what was Chevy Duty. It was $29. (I think). Dan some of the pickups came with trim around WS. My guess is that one is just a pickup one, listed for van???

    It is listed for a chevy van. Just didn't know what the "W/O TRIM GROOVE " meant.
