[DML] Re: Window channel seal replacement

Hi Dan,

Maybe you could clarify the aspect of the process that you're having 
trouble with?

I think this is already in the tech section, but I put the seal in the 
channel and then started with the front of the channel assembly by 
getting the seal separated (using a jewler's screwdriver to coax it 
apart) and over the edge of the glass at the very front. Once it's 
started it's a matter of working slowly towards the real and using the 
little jewler's screwdriver (or something similar) to help guide the 
seal over the edge of the glass as you work your way back. It was a 
little tedious but not particularly difficult. I suppose the seal 
could be lubricated to help it slip over the edge of the glass, but I 
put mine on dry.

You're right that the seal looks a lot nicer than the sloppy RTV and 
leaves much more finished appearance.
