    I'm going to run my wiring down the side of my windshield along the A. What did you guys use to seal/secure it and let me see your pictures! Trying to decide on what I'm going to use.

    No. It sits right in the grove beside glass.
    You can't see my silicone anyways..
    It's just a thin bead before I layed the wire beside glass.
    I'm sure theres pictures here or online of how the black wire looks tucked into that spot..
