    Getting ready to do this, but can’t decide if it’s better to apply the urethane to the glass or the pinch weld. The wrap around aspect has me concerned and not sure of the best method. Anybody watch a pro install and remember how they did it?
    Videos of installs for this style of glass are eluding me.

    Thanks!

    edit: Mods please correct the title for me. I’m only on 1/2 cup of coffee...

    usually applied to glass .body needs to be clean and there is a primer that is used also before sitting on car.

    Yeah, I’m familiar with the primers and techniques, just didn’t know if there is any preference when setting a wrap around.

    Fixed.

    The wrap-around rear window was used from 75-81.

    Didn’t imply you didn’t. Installing 70-73 glass is no different than 75+ though

    So what do you suggest?
    Urethane on the glass or pinchweld.

    Glass, it will ensure you have the bead in the right spot.
