    Sealing rear window on the convertible top

    My rear window is coming loose a bit at the top, and completely from the bottom. With the large amounts of rain we have had lately, I have been bailing a lot of water out of the vinyl catch.

    What should I reseal the window with?? RTV?

    Hmm, I am thinking you are right, does anyone sell just the curtain, or do I have to replace the glass and curtain as a set?

    i used rtv and it has worked well so far i used about a year and a half ago

    i do have a black curtain and window with a god seal but it is from a j/y yard so it may not stay sealed very long.

    I used windshield adhesive urethane and it's held up for over half a decade so far. Can't get it at an auto parts store though, you have to get it from a specialty store and it comes in a one-time-use tube which is way larger than necessary, but I haven't found anything better. It's what they use to glue all the fixed glass on a modern car, so you can't get any stronger than that.
