[DML] Re: Installing the rear side glass



Luis,

I highly recommend following the procedures listed by Toby
and Dave Swingle to re-install your DeLorean rear side glass.

While Claude's work-around may work for an older windshield,
I would not recommend it for a "suspended glass" like the 
rear side glass.  Keep in mind that the rear glass does not
use gravity to help hold it in (or down, like a windshield).

Using the best available adhesives to help hold and suspend
this glass (in addition to the clips, if they still exist)
is the best way to insure the rear side glass will stay in
place and you will not have to re-do it (or replace it). 

Later,
Rich W.

After the glue dries (at least 12 hours, and preferably an entire day), we use a razor blade or similar sharp knife to carefully trim a nice beveled edge around the opening.  This gives the installation a really nice finished look.
