@Rdub6 I got your own thread started. Corvair rear glass is a bigger and different PITA than on an 02 F150.

“I don’t know if I’m in the right spot..... but here goes.
Im about to try to replace the seal around the rear glass in my ‘02 F150. They all seem to leak there, and mine has been for a while. So before the floor gets worse with more rust, the window needs some attention.
Just wondering if anyone has done this, and if they have any tips or tricks to make it go as smooth as possible?”

The window is set in a rubber gasket right?
OEM I believe it was butyl tape. Whatever they used didn’t hold up well. I’ve seen videos of guys putting them back with the tape, and also the 3M stuff in the tube.
After some interior parts come out, it ust unbolts...... clean off the old crap...... new stuff on, and bolt back in (similar to our 1/4 glass). Or so it seems that easy.
I already have a roll of butyl, so I’m going to go with that first.

So, some things are changing with my ‘02.
My daughter will be taking that over once she passes her road rest, and I am in the process of buying an ‘18 F150 2.7 Ecoboost. My first venture into turbo territory, but it’s a nice truck!! Fingers crossed. I will miss the v8 exhaust note for sure.
The ‘02 will now get my full attention to make sure all the stupid things that I deal with, are fixed for her...... starting with my sinking brake pedal (master cylinder is already on the way). I also need to get the parking brake back in order, as most of the components were rusted so I just disconnected it and threw out the crappy springs.
I’ll give the headlights the restoration they need so she can see at night, and maybe I’ll finally put in the tailgate assist shock I’ve always wanted to do, but never did. I’ll replace the broken/ missing center cap on the left rear wheel, and maybe I’ll address the failing clear coat on the A.R.E. tonneau cover. ....... and yeah, we still need to fix the leaking rear glass.
In my head, she’ll drive it for a year or so, and by then the Fox will be somewhat where I want it (maybe), and I will start on this as my next resto project. I bought this truck new 19 years ago......and I won’t be letting go of it that easy!

2.7 Egoboosts leak oil like a sumbitch thanks to their plastic oil pan, be prepared for that.

At least it's not a damned 3.5 Ecoboom. :leghump: those things.

I’ve researched that, and they seemed to have fixed the oil pan, as well as the carbon build up after the ‘17 models.
