After a year, I'm finally ready to install the windows in my Approach Cobra.

Anything available local that can be used to glue them in? Do I need to wait a little longer and order some RC-56?

i have heard that the odor free CA glue from BSI is safe for canopys.

its is the foam safe stuff that has a gold label and black cap.

if you have a scrap i would test there first.

i have used the 56 and the only reason it is a pain is the drying time.

Who cares... its just money...

RC-56 is the best for canopies. I wouldn't use anything else.

maybe try Goop. That stuff glues anything together, dries very clear and maintains a "rubbery" consistency that won't get brittle on you, which is usually a problem. I always used it to glue my canopy halves together on my XCell's. Plus you can get it just about anyplace.

i am not a big fan of the rc-56 because of the drying time. other than that, its good stuff. i have been securing all my canopies/windows in place with small screws simply because i dont like gluing anything in permanently that may need to be replaced. i am glad i didnt glue the windows in on my MD500 because the crash damaged a window and replacing it was a cinch. no glue to rip apart possibly damaging the fragile glasswork in that area

I second the Goop. Works great, and as stated earlier it dries clear and maintains a rubbery consistency. It is easy to trim off excess and is also easy to remove, in the event of a mishap or repainting. Dries fairly quickly as well too.

I used Goop the first time I installed the windows in my 500E, not sure if it was an old tube or what....it turned out awful! I went back with clear silicone and it turned out much better.

might have been old tube, or you didn't get right on it, because as above, it sets up pretty quick. It's also easy to over apply and it really doesn't need much to work right.

heres three options
I have used clear silicone in the past. With good results

Also PVA glue dries clear and I have also used that.

Or you could also try the "S" shaped rubber window seal thats Vario make

After scale everything else is a toy!
