What would you suggest when re-bedding lexan windows?
If not through bolted butyl used as a shim the Dow 795 or Sika 295UV (with special primer) used as the "bond". I run butyl around the inside edge and the sealant the outer edge. The butyl makes a perfect shim for the sealant and also acts as a back up seal..
