    I actually used it on both the front and rear glass. ALTHOUGH, there is a sharp curve on the S13 coupe rear glass and it looked a bit odd, did'not have enough flex to make that curve so it bulged just a bit. I'm very anal, anybody else would say its fine... Do it right the first time! OR get a glass guy to INSTALL the glass for you. It will be less expensive and they do it all the time. Try to find someone who does it for a living and has years of experience. Laying the sealant on the glass and knowing the right amount to lay on only comes with experience. If you lay to much on, it will squish out the flexitrim and make it bulge in areas. too little and you will have leaks. its a one time deal to get it right...
    Call a local glass guy and ask him about the trims he might or might not have, Definitely cheaper that way, and less wasteful as you wont use that 75 foot roll..

    good luck!

    Hey! You had mentioned in a post here:

    http://zilvia.net/f/showpost.php?p=5448291&postcount=18

    that you had good luck using the Flexitrim FT1630 for your front windshield trim. Did you only use it for the front, or can it be used for the rear windshield as well? They sell it in 75' rolls, which is obviously more than one windshield will require, so I thought I mihgt use it for the rear as well.

    Thanks for your help with this. I have an S14 that I am starting to work on, and removal of the windows is going to happen soon so i can prep for paint, so I am trying to get all my materials together for when I put it all back together.
