Bob Drake's glass setting tape for early classic cars, pickup trucks, and hot rods.
Glass setting tape is a must for properly sealing the glass into the windshield frame. Unlike the local glass shop types, ours is a special "all rubber" formula designed to look and perform like the original Ford factory type. It creates a water-tight bond as it cushions the glass. Just fold tape over the glass edge and insert glass into the frame. Excess is easily trimmed with a knife.
To determine the thickness you need,measure the width of the glass, then the width of the channel that glass fits into. Subtract the width of glass from the width of the channel and divide this figure by two. This will be tape thickness. For best results, the tape should be slightly larger than the gap. Tape comes in 20' rolls. All sizes are 1.5" wide.
