In other posts, some say to use butyl tape, others say urethane sealant. There's also this 3M product
http://www.amazon.com/3M-08609-Window-Weld-Urethane-Cartridge/dp/B000FW61EW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383780490&sr=8-1&keywords=windo-weld

as well as the tape version,
http://www.amazon.com/3M-08612-Window-Weld-Ribbon-Sealer/dp/B000CQ4AOO/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1383780602&sr=8-6&keywords=windo-weld

which comes in different widths. My question is what is the best route to go? If it is the tape, what width would work best and is 15 ft enough for both sides of the windshield seal.

Thanks.

I think you could go either way, but the butyl tape on a roll must be heated up to make it pliable during install. For that reason I think the urethate in a tube applied with a calk gun would be better, its softer and less stress will be placed in the glass during install. Either way, I would have a professional install it. If it is cracked during install, it is difficult and expensive to get new glass.
