I know I should think positive but I might as well have a Plan "B" in place !
I am having Broco pull the rear window Tuesday morning .. and if it so happens I need to find a replacement??? :eek::eek:I need to ask the question ...

Anyone have a suggestion where I might find a replacement for my 3rd gen Rear Window?

Don't worry, you won't need one....if it's the original glass it will probably fall out once you pull the trim off.

honest ken.yours will be fine.it's THICK tempered glass and VERY difficult to break:yes:.the original is almost certainly set in butyl tape(outdated technology) and it will probably not be attached very well.
you'll be fine.

That is probably true. However if it was to break try auto city classics for new glass. They are out of MN

So far it's out and awaiting install next week.
Now the prep work begins .. I have been looking at some minor rust around the lower middle of the window inside . Hard to notice...but when you know it's there ..it increases in size every time you look at it ..So I decided to pull the glass .
I am glad I did the rust isn't too bad ..but left untouched it would soon be a lot worse. Someone put silicone around the window bottom ..and they must have got it on sale ..they put enough on to seal the Hoover Dam .
Anyhow I decided to take it all off ..what a job !
I have cleaned up around the window bed now. scraped all the old window adhesive off , used some emery cloth to clean up..now I want to repaint the plate between the window glass and the tray(the tray plate has the majority of surface rust) I'm thinking of using a self etching primer and then painting the package tray end plate and caps . If I use the self etching primer around the window area of the bed it will be covered up by glass and mouldings. My question now is should I also use some POR-15 around the window bed ...would most likely work as a rust inhibitor . ?? But the only thing about using that Por-15 once its on it doesn't come off too easy ...So I thought I'd ask ? Would it effect the reinstall of the window adhesive ?? or is it just overkill ??:confused::yes::no:

That was an interesting link. I can't afford the plane ticket ..or you just might have got the call. I will follow your directions and hire the local professional to put it back in !
Thanks again !
