    In response to 1983G20Van

I appreciate the reply's guys.

Not sure what this was originally as it was very poorly "glued" in.

I had a glass and rubber from a 1976 van that I attempted to install.

With the 1986 glass out and busted I realized it's a no go.

Then I had hole in my 1986 with nothing to fill it up.

I couldn't find a 1986 van rubber online but many for 1971-80.

Then I visited a local a glass shop looking for info.

Sometimes I forget how old I am, glass shop guys were all born after 1986.

I don't think they ever worked on a 1986 van before.

They brought in a 1986 van windshield and set it in place.

It seemed to fit OK so they urethaned it in place.

Its probably supposed to have a reveal molding if no rubber gasket but it'll do.

Now I'm watching out for older chevy vans to see how they're done.

I sure caused myself a lot of grief and $$ trying to use the 1976 glass!!
