    I’m ready to replace the seals on my vents. However, I need some glass setting tape. I ordered it from LMC with some other random things I needed but now that box is lost in transit to me and LMC keeps dragging their feet to send a replacement.

    Has anyone used other tape? If so, what size do I need? Hoping to pick some up from a parts store or Amazon so I can get started soon.
    Thanks!!

    When I do my vent windows I use windscreen adhesive. Fill the frame with the adhesive and insert the glass. Take care that it's nicely centered. Let it dry for at least 3 days.
    Remove the adhesive excess with a scalpel or razor blade. Done. It's cheap and 100% leak proof.

    I have used two-sided adhesive tape designed for attaching side trim. Use lots of Windex on both sides to keep things slippery so you can maneuver the tape and glass into place.
