Short answer, install s/s trim before you install the glass into the cab.
So do the tabs exist in a 5 Star Extra cab? And do you use the same adhesive for the S/S trim?

If the truck is a 5 Star Extra Cab from the factory, then the tabs would be already cut. No adhesive is needed for the s/s trim. It's held in by the pressure of the weatherstrip and installed windshield.

Just for reference


Tabs (located on top and bottom of the windshield opening frame)





No Tabs (trimmed from top and bottom locations)

Thank you sir! That's what I needed to know.

Sorry for the hijack...

Not a hijack. It's still relevant to the windshield installation.

Thanks for the step by step with the photos! I plan on replacing this seal this spring and this will sure help.

Many thanks! I have a 48 and have the stainless trim from a 5 star, I would have struggled to put in the glass with the four tabs still on. Looks like they are going to be cut out!
Thanks again. This Forum is great. 48 Ford Half Ton Pick Up.

If you don't cut them, you'll be buying yourself another new windshield.

P.S. This info is also in the service/repair manual.

Everybody that I asked, including my friend the auto glass guy, and the guy from the Mustang shop....you want some kind of butyl sealer that doesn't harden. Either the stuff in the tube, or the butyl rope. They both said to stay away from silicone sealers.

May I add, get a large suction cup to help hold the glass. It also lets you pull the glass in instead of pushing on it.
