    On a 68 Coronet (probably all late-60's Mopars), does the rear window have a gasket like the windshield has?... or just some sort of sealing material like butyl tape? I know there are different thicknesses of the tape too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Imagine the '68 is the same as the '69.. 3/8" Butyl tape is what you want. Don't forget to obtain or make the rubber spacers for the bottom edge to keep the glass centered and test fit first on some rubbers spacers (to simulate the butyl thickness AND CHECK TRIM FIT HEIGHT!!!). When happy with where it is sitting put masking tape from body to glass and then cut, using these for alignment on your one shot placement of the glass. Good looking assistants are optional...

      Nice. Thanks Wayne! I was looking through your build thread, but was interrupted (attacked by two vicious Pugs). Great info!
