U-shaped glazing gasket in '69

...I'm replacing the bad-looking (bubbled & peeling window tint on wavy buckled plexiglas) glass in my rectangular front and rear windows..

...if the u-shaped glazing gasket shown in the photos below is still available, could someone point me to a source?

..thanks, Andy, I had a strong feeling I was going to end up "gooping-in" the glass....I haven't seen any of that u-gasket on any of the websites lately... am I correct in assuming the better way to glaze the window is to NOT put Vulkem IN the window frame prior to inserting the glass, then "bead" the sealant along the glass/frame perimeter? (it just seems to me if you "glued" it in with Vulkem you'd never get it out if you ever had to change the glass again..)

vintage trailer supply can special order it. I believe you have to buy a complete 80' roll. All my windows have the same gasket. good luck

I used double stick foam tape on the windows in my 68. I spent hours removing the goo from the PO's plexiglass installation and didn't want to do that every again. Clean everything well with good degreaser. When you tighten the screw start in the middle and take them down a little at a time. I also found after doing a couple that it worked best to use a C-clamp to slowing compress the frame together and then put the screws it and release the clamp. That way you are not trying to draw the frame pieces together with just the small screw.
One other thing, once the glass touches the tape it is stuck and won't move. You have to have everything aligned and then let the glass touch the frame and tape.

1969 window gasket

Hello,

I'm look for exactly the same window seal/gasket. What did you end up using?

The original 1969 window gasket is still available, but it has a much improved upgrade, that does a better job of sealing. It's now in the shape of a D.

It's available from parts stocking dealers.

Thank you Andy. Isn't the D shaped gasket for sealing the window and frame against the airstream? I'm looking for the seal that goes into the aluminum window frame to keep the glass in place.

Thanks,

Kitter

That gasket is not available from Airstream.

They will not sell it.

Is the best solution to place the window back in the frame and bead it in with Vulkem?

Thanks.

What are the measurements? Here's a company that carriers some older style glazing channels:
