[T3] Windshield (and Seal) Replacement


Hello all,

Well, now that I have new tires for the Fastback and
have replaced all of the fuel hoses and adjusted the
brakes, the beast is once again operational and acting
as my daily ride.

However, all the rain we've had recently has brought a
new problem to the forefront: my windshield seal
leaks...a lot.

I know the usual culprits of water inside the car are
clogged air box drain tubes. However, I'm pretty
certain that it's the windshield seal leaking (also,
my windshield is fogged around the lower corners,
indicating that at least some moisture has infiltrated
the seal). 

I called Safelite today as they replaced the seal on
my old 69 Square; however, the woman there told me
that this windshield is NLA. Has anyone had a
windshield replaced by Safelite in the recent past?

If so, what type of seal did they use? I'd like to
retain the stock look of the seals, so Cal Look is
out. 

I know I can do this job myself, but this is one of
those things where the frustration involved is worth
paying someone else to deal with. Plus, Safelite's
guarantee means that if it leaks the first time I can
take it back to them.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
- Doug :-)
