Windshield seal?
#1
Looking in the Jim Osborne body assembly manual, sheet N1-200, view B shows a windshield seal assembly. This is NOT the rear window. It's shown as P/N D1ZB-65030A28-A1A or A2A. It gets sandwiched between the windshield and the gutter (?), and then a bead of sealant gets shot around it. I can't find the seal assembly, are they available? How'd you guys get your windshields installed?

I believe what you are looking for is this, 3M windo-weld windshield sealer. CJ Pony parts has it for $23.99.

Mustang Windshield Ribbon Sealer 1969-1973
Part Number: AD8612
Windshield Ribbon Sealer for 1969-1973 Mustangs.

1969-1973 Mustangs do not use a weatherstrip gasket for windshield installation and require this special sealer for proper installation. Measures 3/8" wide by 15' long.

I just took the windshield out of my 1973 Grandé for a cowl panel replacement and that sealer stuff is 3/8" thick. This will be my first windshield replacement so I have yet to put it back in so I can't give you feedback on how it goes back in.

sorry for the hijack...how did you get your old windshield out? I have heard in the past to use piano string. I have to take out mine and i'm sure its not going to come out easy after 40 years.

I used this from Harbor Freight. It took 2 people, my wife on the inside and me on the outside, but it only took 5 minutes. I did not break my windshield. Worked like a charm.

No problem, the wire the kit came with had enough to probably do several windshields so you don't have to worry about running out (the wire starts to fray on the trim clip posts and the sharper edges).

Then there's a "cold knife" for one person to cut the seal:

The link is messed up for me Don, but I tried using a windshield seal cutter but the gooey sealant mess kept gumming up the knife. However, my windshield had been replaced in the 80's after an accident and they didn't use the correct materials to reinstall it, so that may have been why it didn't work. They just shot sealant all inside it (gluing the A pillar trim pieces to the A pillars in the process. Idiots.).

Are you sure they didn't seal the window, then shot the gap with black silicon to keep water out of the gap between the trim and the window? I've seen this done a few times.

If I'm not mistaken, the front window on the Mustang adheres about the same as the rear window on my '79 Lincoln - and if so, there's no way around getting gummed up with the single-person knife method - even if you're dealing with a smashed piece of glass, as I am here:

Note to newbies: Don't use this method to take out an intact window! The photo is to show the window adhesive only.

Steve that was the original butyl rubber sealant - Ford did it [ that is why all the pillar trim gets broken ] it oozed out onto the trim.
That stuff never hardens - cut it with a knife and it will reseal itself pretty quick -
The only tape I have seen is a 1/8 or so foam strip that is put down first - always on the rear window.
Front was layed in a bed of butyl
New sealants are urathane, dries / cures in a day
80's was probably still a butyl type sealant as I do not think the 2 are compatable
