Are these gaskets still available?? I need to replace my windshield. I'll take two.
I will sell you mine. I ordered one and really don't need it. Paul can ship it to you. He has not shipped it yet.
If you need it fast, I can ship you one from the previous batch I have on hand. I'm in Dallas, so it will be to you in a day.
email me email@example.com

If there are any available I would like to buy one. I'm in NH.

I know this thread is rather old, but I got my gasket from the local windshield repair store. Fits fine and looks like the original. Does anyone know where I can get the plastic silver inserts to make the gasket stocl looking?

I looked forever for them with no luck. Several people said that Gen2 inserts (which are metal and much better built, but still pretty darn thin!) would work, but they need trimming.
Well... they kind of work...
The vertical sides went in just fine. But the curve is different for the top and bottom pieces. Expect some buckling when you install them if you go this route. It's better than nothing, but certainly not perfect.

Certainly not my experience! Yes they need to be cut (which means the top piece has to have a join) but with careful bending and shaping the result is as close to perfect as you can get. You have to look damn close to notice the join in the top piece and there is certainly no buckling in mine.

Nicely done. I don't remember the details, but I spent a TON of time on it and definitely had trouble getting the bottom piece in.

Hey if it's still possible to buy a gasket I'm interested!
