    Default Rear Window Still Holding Tight

    Did a trip from Kentucky to Boston, Ma and back. Heavy rainstorms on the way up. No leaks at the rear window.
    Did a couple of 90-100 MPH bursts on the way back. Window's holding tight.
    Rhino Glue is awesome.

    I am now at the 4 year point and haven't had so much as a pinhole leak around the window I repaired with Rhino Glue. That was the best suggestion I've encountered anywhere on the forum. Thanks again!

    Default Convertible Window Separationshops

    I had the same problem but took a few minutes to call around to different upholstery shops and found one in Glendale, AZ that could repair it. They guaranteed their work for three years in the heat of the Valley of the Sun where it is routinely 112 degrees. The total cost was $500, far cheaper than a new top. My hat is off to those who were able to repair it themselves. I just don't have the patience.

    Default Top glue

    I used 3M Window Weld and it held up good for about 3 years. The whole thing was almost detached when I repaired it back in November 2013. I had to use a primer with the 3M. I don't keep it in the garage. I park it on the street. That's 3 years of sitting in all kinds of weather.
    I'm noticing a little separation at the top now so I'm going to try the Rhino glue this time. It looks like it will be easier to do with that.
    Back in 2013 when I fixed it, I did the same thing with the suction cups and rope over the rafter in my garage.
    People question why I don't garage it all the time. I tell them it's like when I was a Marine. There are barracks Marines who like to stand around and look pretty in their dress blues and there are bush Marines who like to be out all the time doing stuff and getting into action. I was a bush Marine. My C-5 is a bush 'Vette. It wasn't meant to just sit around and look pretty. It was meant to be driven. It's my daily driver.
    Besides that, it's kind of a long walk for me back to my detached garage just to get it out to go somewhere then put it back in and walk back to the house.
