  • Stanchion rubber

    Any one know the slot the rubber gasket goes in? With the shield closed it looks like to would be in the outside groove but there is the middle one as well. Is the rubber when shield is closed on the outside or inside of shield? I would assume out?? What the hell I know...

    Need to post a picture or something, as you've lost me here. Any stanchions I've ever seen only have one slot.

      Randy...the center slot seems too big for the correct rubber I have.

        The center slot is the only place it can go. I had to glue the last ones I did as they kept working loose.

        I honestly don't know which side of the windshield it should be on - mine seems to prefer being on the inside and since I'm not concerned about getting water in (never drive it in the rain) I leave it there. Placed on the outside seems to most logical, unless you fold your windshield out often, but then it will be on the inside when you rotate the windshield back in!!. Maybe someone else will chime in in this regard or maybe you can find a good picture among all the ones of Mark Maron's roadster that Mitch posted.

        28/29 roadster/phaeton stanchion weatherstrip installation
        by wrndln
        I have a couple questions about how the rubber weatherstrip is installed in a 28/29 open car windshield stanchion. I have some rubber weatherstripping I believe is correct - pictured below. There is a long piece of rubber weatherstrip that goes in the slot in the bottom of the windshield frame. It is symmetric, so no problem there. However, there are 2 shorter rubber weatherstrip pieces that are suppose...

        by Sterling31
        I have a 1931 Ford Fordor Slant window that I have be restoring for about 8 years. Need some guidance on installation of the windshield header rubber and interior trim pieces that appear to be missing. Not sure how to miter the windshield side rubbers to meet with the header rubber to avoid air noise. Also, it appears I am missing something in the upper corners of the windshield interior trim pieces...

        Old rubber windshield gasket
        by BillLee/Chandler, TX
        I'm trying to clean up a windshield frame for my '29 Tudor. The one that came with the car was never properly restored and is close to rusting completely away.

        Got a real nice one from Berts and am now working on it. What are the options for getting the old, hard rubber gasket out of the frame? The stuff that's still there is hard and reluctant to remove, stuck in the little channel all...

        Open Car Windshield Questions
        by dmdeaton
        Are there any good links or resources for info on how to adjust and assemble the windshield assembles on a open car? I am taking off the spotlights on the roadster and one stanchion I am having issues with. Mounting holes are too large for the countersink bolts.
        Both lower stanchions don't seem to line up and pull in when tightened. This binds on the windshield. I have the upper gaskets in...

        31 Roadster windshield install questions and help
        by old31
        I have watched the videos and done a search on installs.

        Which material is correct?

        The material on the left is what I took out. The edges do not appear to be cut, and to me it looks like the right stuff. On the right is Brattons and that you must cut the inside and outside after install. Why is it so wide?

        I put silicone on the glass and it just drags and tears...

        Finish of Rubber Seal between windshield and body
        by P. Crosby
        If the windshield frame is painted upper body color and it seems I have seen pictures on the assembly line with the frame next to the body, is the rubber seal between the windshield frame hinge and the body plain, as in rubber colored black or painted. Seems like it is installed after being painted therefore unfinished?

        Installing windshield
        by JohnB15632
        Try as I might, I can not get the Windshield to close. It hits against the filler strip.
        I am beginning to think that I have the wrong windshield for my 31 SW 4D TS.

        I have a windshield which is original. I measured the heights in the center of the window and the one installed is almost 1/4" bigger. This different in heights is what is leading me to think that this windshield...

        Windshield weatherstrip installation
        by Paragon
        Windshield glass, weather seal around glass and frame all went together well. Have installed bottom weatherstrip and let it rest overnight to "adjust" for any stretching. What's the trick to installing the two side weatherstripping around the windshield square nuts that are in the channel? Do you guys cut a notch in the bead to go around the nut? Is there enough stretch to get the bead...
