so is the tape supposed to be always used with the caulking stuff in addition to it? I know you have to get the depth correct for the trim. Or do some use just the caulking stuff alone? What is it called? thanks

yeah, it looks like they call out the 5/16 tape. after setting the glass follow up with the caulk to back fill. make sure all area is clean and try to keep a straight line with the tape so you wont see it after trim is installed.

Your caulking gun may not get the material where you need it so then use a cheap plastic putty knife to push it in under the glass up to the tape. I have done some windows and not had any issues with leaking using this process. However im not a pro at all just been lucky helping a few buddy's out in the past. :eek:

The link you provided called out the 5/16 tape and that sound right but i dont know for sure. You can lay the glass on the tape before you push it in and and then sample test a peice of trim. you should know then. GOOD LUCK:)
