rear gate glass question

just broke my rear window serves me right for being lazy about replacing the trim rubber. my truck is an '82 and the glass had a chrome trim piece surrounding. i had a spare from a later model and assumed it was the same size. so i tried to install it-sourced out some older clips and polyurethaned the "new" glass into the track. i also re-installed the chrome piece so it would slide into the channel properly. it doesn't it seems like the glass is slightly bigger. question--does the glass size vary over different years? or is there some other issue i'm overlooking? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, ian in toronto

By "bigger do you mean in overall size or thickness? I'm pretty sure the later tailgate glass is thinner than the older ones but wasn't aware of any length/width diffrerences. Have you measured the glass?

it's already in with the trim piece on. the reason i think the size may vary is that on later models they use a piece of rubber trim in the body side that mine never had
