With the new rubber pushed into the main chrome frame and into the horizontal portion of the tin frame, we installed the short-length vertical seal in the upright portion of the light metal frame by lining up the small metal tabs with the holes in the frame. Be sure to position the seal on the window side of the frame with the wider portion of the seal facing the interior. Now bend the tabs over with a flat screwdriver blade to secure the seal. Note how the tabs fit into those small recesses. There are actually four different ways this seal can fit, but only one way is correct. Ask us how we know . . . With the new rubber pushed into the main chrome frame and into the horizontal portion of t Don't forget to place the small metal washer and then the fiber washer on the upper portion of that U-shaped bracket. This is followed by the second fiber washer and second metal washer, which seats the spring, followed by the locking tab and the nut. Just lightly tighten the nut at this time. Don't forget to place the small metal washer and then the fiber washer on the upper portio We began the final assembly by attaching the large chrome frame to the vertical upright with the two large Phillips-head screws. We placed the vent-window upper pivot pin in the chrome frame while carefully pulling the chrome frame up to meet the vertical metal frame. Bring the two frame halves together and attach them with the small Phillips-head screw at the top. As you can see here, there may be misalignment that will require some muscle to start that small screw. Once the small screw is in place securely (don't fully tighten it just yet), you can fasten the two larger screws at the bottom. We began the final assembly by attaching the large chrome frame to the vertical upright wi We then set the door-glass window channel seal into the long vertical upright channel and removed the small Phillips-head screw long enough to put the top portion of the door-glass channel seal into place and reinstall the screw. The final step is to adjust the amount of preload on the vent window by tightening the small nut. Place just enough torque on the nut to keep the vent window open at freeway speed. Then bend the locking tab in place and you're done. We then set the door-glass window channel seal into the long vertical upright channel and With both vent windows restored, they are ready to bolt back into the door-as soon as we cut out and repair all that Midwest rust that's been slowly devouring our A-body for the last 40 years.
