1967 Chevrolet Nova Windshield Installation Instructions

You need to install a new windshield on your 1967 Nova if it is cracked or chipped. Cracks and chips spread and compromise the integrity of the windshield over time. Since the windshield is one of the vehicle's main safety components, you need to make sure it is free of defects and installed correctly. Replacing the windshield will also keep you from getting an expensive ticket. You just need a few supplies that can be found at any auto parts store to do the job.

Tools Used: Damp cloth, Gasket, Windshield, Urethane sealant, Heavy nylon cord, Petroleum jelly, Work gloves

Install Windshield

Clean the new windshield and windshield opening with a damp cloth. Wipe off the new gasket and place it in the sun.

Fit the gasket around the windshield with the slit side of the gasket facing outside the Nova. Run a bead of sealant along the bottom channel on the gasket.

Spread some petroleum jelly into the gasket's outer groove, putting a little extra at the top and bottom center. Starting at the bottom center, wrap a nylon cord around the outer groove. Leave two long ends of cord hanging out of the bottom center.

Ask an assistant to place the windshield in the opening as you sit inside the vehicle and guide him. Pull the cords into the vehicle.

Pull one cord end slowly out of the gasket and around the frame to bring the rubber lip into place while your helper presses the rubber gasket around the outside edge of the car.

Allow the gasket to dry for 48 hours before driving.
