This is the glass/rubber/trim assembly ready for the rope. This is the old rubber from the car and the old putty was cleaned in a 20 gal tote of water and scraped with the end of a tooth brush and also a brass wire brush. It was a lot of work since the putty was sticky and didn't want to come off the rubber. I did this before I found out that Brake Clean is an excellent solvent for the Mercedes gray putty.
