Installing a flat square window with Trempro 635

How badly have I messed up? I just installed new glass in one of the windows on our '59 and just used Trempro. I think the window model is Hehr Hallmark 12. It contains a simple, flat square piece of glass and had what appeared to be thin butyl tape holding the old glass in, or what was left of it. (Lawn mower kicked a rock out).

That thin butyl tape also acts as a spacer that sets the glass in the proper position for the outer gray plastic trim to snap into place.
I rebuilt several windows that were siliconed in place, a real pain to dig the silicone out of the small groove that the trim snaps into.

Thanks for the reply. I was pretty sure the butyl tape was there for that very purpose. Along those lines I did the best I could to seat the glass at the same depth as it was originally. I'm certain getting the stuff out of the grooves will be difficult should the need ever arise. I thought of that before hand as well.

I'm getting impatient and really want to start making some headway on this trailer. You've replied to a few of my posts before. By the way, I've always liked the periodic table/lone ranger tag. This trailer has been an ongoing project for well over a year now. I'll get on a roll and something will come up. I'd really like to just get it to the point that I can safely tow it an not worry about something flying open or off or both.

Presently, I'm insulating and trying to put reflective film on the windows. It's amazing what one layer of PIC foam will do. I'm putting in two layers but almost wonder if that's not overkill. It hasn't gotten hot yet so I'm sure July or August will change my mind.

Thanks again,
James

Lol. That is a lofty goal with one of these old trailers.
I constantly have windows wiggle open, Iíve lost two vent covers and had to pull over countless times to close a hatch or something else thatís flopping around. Just all part of the vintage lifestyle.
Hopefully you get it in the road soon.
