Icon13 Fu##ED up my rear window seal!!

Well i have posted this before....long story short. Bought my truck didnt notice it was leaking water...so i rushed to o'reillys and bought BLACK weatherstrip adhesive...It worked fine, but its faded and cracking...So yesterday i got the bright idea of buying clear silicone. SO i stripped off the adhesive the best i could and applied the silicone...Well i wasnt coming out right so i had to smooth it out with my finger,,,now it looks like total azz...Also those little shoulder pieces on top of the cab is sealed with silicone too....So i called a place and they said i was screwd basically, and i should take a razor and cut it all off the best i could, and redo with something else...

I callled a glass place they said they use urethane, so NOTHING will adhere to silicone....So i dont know what to do... Yeah i know i have no pics, im at work...and photobucket is denied....

Of course this doesn't help now but in the future, when applying silicone keep your finger wet or what works really nice is a plastic spoon.
I don't know the name of it but there is a product that will remove all the silicone. After cutting away as much as you can you apply this liquid and let it sit then use a paper wipe and rub it off. It's a slow process but it will get it down to bare paint or metal (it does not lift paint). Do a search on the web.

OOPS or goof off will get it off, or sometimes rubbing alcohol works
