hay all I got a question, I am installing new glass on the curb side front window, I have the new gasket installed, do I just add silicone to the inside of the gasket and install window, or do you need some butel tape in between the gasket and window?
I think I understand the process of put gasket on the aluminum, slide glass up to outer edge of wood, put in the wood trim to hold it there then carefully tighten the outside screws? correct.
and on tightening screws do you just go down the rows of them, or Kris cross like putting lug nuts on a tire?
You can use a very thin bead of silicone below the gasket, as long as it is on the inside and won't show. Once you get the glass against the gasket, install the inside trim sticks. Then you tighten the screws, one by one, carefully. Tighten too much and you'll break the glass... I always do dinette window screws by hand.

thanks Vikx, that is kind of the process I was seeing in my head, I bought new glass from a local glass guy here, so it is 1/8 inch which seems a bit thicker that what was in it, not sure if the old glass was factory or not, but it was about the thinest glass window I had ever seen.
