Can you tell me about window glazing?

How do you know if it has gone bad? Can you repair the seal without removing the little rubber strips that go around the inside edge of the aluminum?

I have a 1972 Ambassador and have redone everything on the windows except the glaze, but I do see it is a favorite place for mildew to grow

I'm scared about replacing it. Reattaching the windows after removing them is a hairy job for me. Don't want to screw up as I live in my Airstream.

Suggest that you look in the restoration section under windows. Several people have done this, myself included, and have some very good posts on how to solve your problem. There are also several posts with pictures. Good luck, Chris

I've scrolled through a few pages, but not finding what I am looking for.

Can you link me to your thread and any others you can find easily?

Also, how do I know the if glazing needs to be replaced?

The rubber glazing on one of the windows of my '70 Safari has shrunk and actually pulled out of the frame. I would say that's a good sign the seal has gone bad. The previous owner tried to fill the space between the glass and frame with clear caulk, which doesn't look that good. I'd prefer to repair the window with new rubber glazing but haven't figured out how to do it yet.

Would a good coating or Pardoned solve the issue?

Parabond works as a good sealer for some things. Go to the restoration section (to go there, at the top of the page you will see AIR Forums, and directly below you will see Portal, Forums, Registry etc. Click on Forums, then scroll down to the restoration, repair section until you come to the Windows, doors and locks section. Click on the Windows and screens sub-section.) Here you will find many detailed instructions on how to repair and replace everything about windows. Good luck, Chris
