Here I am again 6 months later - thought I found a great installer - well its already leaking in 3 different places and literally killed my car stereo..... at this point I will literally drive anywhere in the western states to find an installer who has the experience and knows what they are doing - I just can't accept a leaking windshield .... anyone have recommendations?

I don't know what the cure is for these, perhaps to use the old style gasket and load it up with sealer on the install. My 91 leaked from over the glass on the right side somewhere too and I don't know that one had ever been changed.

Thanks Pontiac59 - me neither. I am now considering doing it myself - which seems like a fools errand when people who its their ENTIRE JOB can't seem to get it done right. If I can't find someone to do it then I think I will go with the old style gasket that is mentioned here - but what I don't know from here is:
1 - If I can use the same windshield I have or if I have to get a 1979 one
2 - If the windshield rubber comes with the locking strip (and if not if its possible to buy one)

I would love to be able find a competent installer who can save me the trouble. I am convinced that no one in the industry gives the tiniest s**t about what they are doing.

I would ask about rot but I see you're in Washington, from what I can see rust isn't a huge issue there.

The 94 I have now was garaged most of it's life but still has three holes above the drip rail, some rust below, and leaks a little at the base of the windshield where there's more rust below the edge of it. I need to get off my butt and take the vent screen off and clean that out and run some filler in there. Not ideal but okay for now. I temp fixed a couple of the roof holes with duct tape. lol

Thanks - yeah it definitely did have rot - but the first glass shop I went to had a body shop next to it and they patched it before the glass shop did their attempt one (the attempt where they didn't even use the internal trim), their attempt two was the external rubber peeling off in a week - then I found an old school guy who was up front about what a hard job the glue ins are and that there was a good chance it would leak after - yes in 3 places. I got hold of the old school guy yesterday and he is going to put in the 70s rubber for me and thinks that will do it.

Nice job on the duct tape :-) My Maaco paint job is showing its age now with a couple of body rust spots I'll need to do soon. I really want to airbrush me as Conan on the side at some point :-) :-)

Hey all - just wanted to follow up here - my old school glass guy put in the old style seal in my G10 and now it is perfectly sealed. I highly recommend that anyone needing a replacement seal go to someone who can specifically tell you they have experience with these vans and that they understand the difference between the seal types - and then get them to install the old style seal. It is so darn nice to have my windshield all nicely sealed again and I can't believe how many tries it took across 2 different installers (fixed on 4th try). Anyways - good luck everyone and thanks for the help here.
