Does anyone know of a qualified glass installer in the Orlando or Central Florida area who can do a windshield and rear window installation using the "dam and urethane" method as opposed to using the butyl strip?

Thanks................Dave

There are literally hundreds of glass shops in that area, and any of them use urethane every day for late model windshield replacement; it's against the law to use butyl in late model cars, and will get their liability insurance cancelled.

John, thanks for your reply.

Are you saying that any one of these hundreds of glass shops should be qualified to do this job?......including using the dam?......including setting the glass at the right height so that the window moldings fit correctly?

I didn't know if this was a case where you have to find an "old school" guy who is experienced with old cars to get this done correctly.

I'm saying there's nothing new or unique about using urethane to install windshields and backlites - they do it every day. Obviously, it would help if they have an installer who has done older cars with reveal moldings, as most newer cars don't have them.
