The windshield seal is a standard kit used on all windshields, you
local parts store should have one, just asked for one for a 81 Trans Am.
They also sell butyl sealer comes in a tube, you can use a regular
corking gun to apply it with. Don't really need the butyl unless it
leaks after installing the windshield.
The easiest way to get the old seal off is cutting it with a utility
knife, then using a window scraper for the rest. Take some lacquer
thiner to clean up what you can't scrap off, it's messy but does
the job, just make sure it's nice and clean before you apply
the new seal.
