Rear window glass?

How much room is needed for the windlace on the inside of the rear window glass? Doesn't seem to be enough room after adhesive is on.

thanks

Enough room for the channel in the lace to fit into. You need to use the old school black sealer. The old school is ~1/2" think. The newer tends to be thinner which will throw off the fit of the windlace and the SS trim on the exterior.

Yes, 69 442. The black sealer you are referring to, is that butyl tape? Theres only about 3/8" of the pinch weld surface that the window overlaps when window is centered in the opening.
