Re: Resealing and rebedding cabin windows/ports with Butyl tape

I'm not sure how well the butyl is going to adhere to the smooth glass, especially in cold weather. If it bonds well in all temps then that is an easy way to reseal ports. I used Dow Corning 795 which is an industrial glazing adhesive. Faster (mod here on SN) recommended it and it's an excellent product. As big a job as it is I wouldn't want to experiment.
