Hi all,

how do you install a rear windshield on a 68 charger? What adhesive do you use?

Is the lower sill trim fitted onto the window before install? I’ve installed trim clips but the lower sill apparently doesn’t need them?

thank you for any help!
 
5/16 butyl tape. It is best to install the inside trim first. Nothing attaches to the glass. Not sure what you mean by the lower sill doesn't need them?

There’s no holes for trim clips on bottom but I guess I’ll have to drill some?
And what do u mean install inside trim first? You mean the trim clips?
Thanks!

The plastic trim that goes around the inside perimeter of the window. It is a lot harder to do with the glass in place. Yes you will have to drill for the trim clips. I assume the dutchman panel has been replaced.

So good order is to do headliner first, then inside window trim, then butyl tape and rear window, then outside trim?
 
If you're going to do the headliner any time soon now is the time. Way easier with rear glass out. Butyl tape sucks. Will eventually leak and rust your trunk out. 3M fast cure auto glass urethane is best. Get 2 tubes. You'll need about 1 1/4 tubes. The inside of the glass around the edge will have to be primed with urethane glass primer so the urethane will stick to the glass properly. Modern windshields come with it already on the glass. Use rubber gloves and have some paint thinner handy for clean up. Good luck.

Yes that would work better plus the headliner is a lot easier to do with all glass out.
