We purchased everything from VTS to re-mount and re-seal our windows on our 62 Ambassador.
The items we used were as follows:
Hehr Hall-Mark 12 Glazing Strip (24' Length)-This was the correct window trim for the outside once you have installed the windows in their frames.
Hehr Window Bulb Seal (24' Length) - This is the seal that goes around the inside of the window frames to seal the window when closed.
Butyl Glazing Tape (50' Reel) - We used 1.5 rolls of this. It is used to adhere the glass into the window frames. We broke a couple of windows when removing them, but found that using a small portable steamer, the heat would loosen the old tape and the windows came out much easier. Additionally, the steamer was very helpful to blast out the crud built up in the bulb seal grooves and to remove the old butyl tape.
If you break a window, they are easily cut from standard glass found at your local ACE or other hardware store. Our Home Depot will no longer cut glass.
Hopefully this is helpful.
