How To Repair Your Imperial's Backglass

Imperial Home Page -> Repair -> Body & Sheet Metal -> Backglass

Question from Greg (1961):

I need some info on how to get original back glass and Andy Berhbaum reproduction gasket reinstalled in '61
Imperial 4 door hardtop.

Glass shop has tried to reinstall it twice and can't get gasket tight w/o leaks.

Any info on techniques, recommended sealer etc. would be appreciated.

Reply from John:

I had the same problem on my '60, same glass as '61 & the Andy Bernbaum gasket. The rear window leaks worse then it previously did. If I had it to do over again, I would have tried to find a good used gasket, or even have risked putting the old one back & taking a chance of having the glass break.
