Re: CD windshield install
Peter Berard's advice is good. Two other things might be of help. The slot in the rubber where the strong string is placed can be lubricated with water less hand soap--the non abrasive kind. Provides super slick flexing of the rubber.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Having installed dozens of window glass in various vehicles I learned that if the actual glass you are working with seems too large and all efforts fail to install it, it is (believe it or not) possible to grind the laminated (not tempered) glass down so it will fit. Go to a good glass company and they will have abrasive discs to be used by an orbital grinder that is used to carefully cut down on the edge of the glass. They will tell you to do the job carefully to not generate any heat. When I badly needed that information the glass company actually gave me free of charge three adhesive backed discs. I went home, and from time to time--so I didn't get carried away doing to much at one time--ground on the side of the glass that was a little too wide. Don't know how much I took off but after a while the glass went in beautifully with help of a couple of people on the outside putting just the right amount of pressure while I pulled the string and used the plastic glass tool in a couple of tough places.
