I have all new weatherstripping for my wagon. I bought the wagon with all the glass already taken out and I believe I'm missing some trim pieces that hold the large rear side windows. The wagon is a 63. Anyways, the first question is how the large side windows get held in at the top. I have the bottom pieces, but could use some pictures or a description for the top. I think I'm missing these pieces!
The next question is this. I have the new window gaskets for these same large rear side glass, but the glass still has the old gaskets in place and there seems to be some kind of sealer. Its almost like tar or bubblegum like in texture. Is there some kind of sealer I need?

Thanks, Hope I was descriptive enough

I can't really say about the sealer (i've owned wagons, but never had windows out) but, there should be 4 pieces to the frame to hold the glass in.

Hey I know this one :D

To secure your window in the rear there are two bottom rails that push and hold the seal and glass up to the body. On the top there are three smaller inside trim pieces will hold the seal/glass to the top. 3M makes a product called Windo-Weld part no. 08609 that is used to seal the glass to the inside of the seal. You can use this same urethane sealer for the seal to the body, but it's gonna be a feat to ever remove the glass later. I recommend another 3M product here. It is 3M Bedding and Glazing compound part no. 08509 it stays flexible (non curing) and is just like the oem intended. You'll need two tubes of this and one of the 08609 to seal the rear windows.

Let me know if you have any more questions on glass install. Happy to help.

This is funny. I used to build glass aquariums and use silicone sealer to fuse the glass water tight. When recently I removed the passenger quarter window, I wedged the window in while the black silicone cured. I used a pink bath shower curtain. I filled any gaps with additional glue and voila no leaks.

Check with "Steele Rubber Products" they usually have any rubber part for almost any car.

I was thinking of doing the same thing on my Wagon. On all of my Hot Rods I've built, I've made them to where all the stationary glass is glued in like the late-model cars and they have worked perfect for me.
