Wow, nice to see a no-reserve auction for a change. You started it at a low bid too, so you are very brave, but that does get more people's interest piqued. Very nice truck, I'm impressed.

"Both side door glass is cracked, but it's easy to replace these flat pieces." I wish this were true. Every time I've attempted to replace the door glass in my truck, I have cracked it trying to get it in. That thing is a bugger. There has got to be a way to do it, but it isn't obvious.

Assuming that a truck door is like the front door on a 4dr sedan, say a 56 Dodge 4 dr sedan like mine, I think I might know the trick:

Based on my first time experience this is what I found:

56D500boy - 2017-07-13 11:53 PM

I was going to ask for hints as to how to reassemble my driver's door with the glass out, the vent window frame and main window channel out and the upper and rear channel out. I didn't ask and I didn't read anything about it. I just tried and discovered. What I discovered was:

1. I needed to get the cat's whisker strip attached to the door before I could permanently install the glass, etc. (which I did using 1/8" x 1/8" rivets, there were some issues and I will have to redo it tomorrow).

2. I needed to get the glass back in before any of the channels. I inserted the glass into the door and turned the crank until I could get the guide pin into the slot in the bottom frame of the window.

3. Once the glass was in, I could install the vent window frame (and new 23-42-13 channel attached to the frame with rivets and trim glue (NOTE: I drilled relief pockets in the back of the new metal channel so the existing rivet heads in the vent window frame channel didn't push the new fuzzy channel out and away from the vent window frame.) With the window in the door and part way down, I fed the vent window frame with the new fuzzy channel *OVER* the front edge of the window glass, at the same time manipulating the frame into place (4 screws (3 small and one large) had to line up). Took some doing. You have to be patient and not force anything (in case you crack the glass).

4. Once the front channel was screwed in place, I fed the pre-bent (over the glass) 23-42-16 one-piece upper and rear channel over the rear edge of the window glass and down (and then up into the grove). I would use rivets to hold that channel in place but my pop rivet tool's nose is too wide (and I have to pop rivet from the fuzzy side). I will either look for a narrow head for the riveter or use small flat head screws. Not sure which. Will deal with that tomorrow (probably pull it all apart again to redo the cat's whisker that somehow moved while I was pop-riveting it into place on the door).

I saw it on e-bay first as I don't come on here very often. Very reasonable price. My top bid was considerably more as I have wanted one of these for a long time.
