You will get 2 Tube's of ADDCO Titan Urethane Adhesive (this is a non conductive /high modulus urethane ) 1 Bottle of pinch weld primer 2 roll's of closed cell foam dam  enough for front and back glass and detailed instructions i'll pre cut 2 tip's to the correct size and supply you with some extras if needed. If $100.00 w /shipping included is fair let me know. Need about a week's leed time on a kit. I'll try to get some close up pic's of the dam this weekend. the car in the pic's is my friend Angelo Rudlophi's 67 it's a base model 327/4 speed car that's getting a 468 big block 4 speed 12 bolt swap the hood is an original Baldwin Motion off a 68 Motion that a guy on his street owned back in the 70's He has the  motion wheel's also  thank's

Do you use the spacer blocks mentioned above by JohnZ when you install a windshield, or do you rely solely on the dam to set the height of the glass?  How thick and how wide is the dam?

Also, does the dam get mounted to the body or to the glass?  I'm wondering how you know where to put the dam in order to have it look consistent all the way around.

Thanks for your help,
Jeff

The dam is applied to the glass before the adhesive is applied to the glass.

the dam set's the height. the spacer blocks  john z is talking about might be from years ago when most glass shop's  used ESSEX U400 Urethane this was real runny almost like silicone and you woulkd use the blocks to hold the glass at the corrrect height. As for installing the dam I will mark the outside of the glass with whitness mark's or 3/4 masking tape after it is dry fit and square to the car. You want the dam about 1/4 inch in from the edge of the glass. bye applying the tape you get a nice straight line to work with when you install the dam on the inside of the glass. once the dam is installed reinstall glass dry and set the stop's at the bottom of the glass mark them with tape or a sharpie marker and your ready for the adhesive.

IN OHIO YOU HAVE TO USE URATHANE . THEY WILL NOT LET GLASS COMPANIES USE OLD SCHOOL BUTYL. SO CHECK WITH YOUR STATE HIGHWAY PATROL

I just finished installing my windshield and back glass with Jeffs kit. It worked great and looks great. I would highly recommend it!  Thanks, Scoop
