Changing Door Glass

I got all the parts I think I need to to chnage the door glass and felt for both doors this weekend. Anybody got any tips or tricks they want to share? Video? Pictures?

To me, it's the hardest job there is to restoring a truck! Glad it only has two doors! My tip would be to be patient and do not force anything where it dosen't want to go. When you finally get everthing aligned it will all be great and you will be glad to have it behind you!

The Dennis Carpenter Catalog has step by step instructions on how to do it. I found them helpful. If you don't have a copy, you can go to his website and download the current one. Instructions start on page 128 of the new catalog.

Don't let these guys scare you, it is not that hard, just don't get in a hurry.

Thanks Walston. I will take a good look before I dive in. I'm betting the pros have a few tricks. They usually do. I never understood why no car/truck manfacturer ever made a fully removeable inner door skin. Or at least a couple of large, well placed access panels.

I didn't think this was too bad of a job... Maybe I'm confused. Did you end up with the full kit? Like Walston said, I snagged one of the LMC complete kits and all of the parts went in without issue except that I got the window lift channel on backwards the first time. Seems like the design is backwards to me! Then again I am left-handed! Bending the door glass run can be a pain. Once again like Walston said, don't get in a hurry. At the bottom end of the door glass run there is a metal tang that holds the bottom to the door. Make sure that gets over the top of the felt channel and smashed down. With the plastic roller, white assembly grease is your friend.

At 60 years old in May, I have a bit of a hard time working my hands in tight places and My vision isn't what it used to be. I can still change a tire on a split rim or change out a set of leaf springs, It's just the arthritic fingers don't contort like they used to. Oh, and if I could have kept my fingers out of the table saw over the years, I might still have some feeling in my fingertips. Sorry if you just ate

They closed them up pretty good there. I remember once while still a kid at home I caught mine on the saw and my dad felt sorry for me so he was finishing the job for me and cut his fingers worse! What true fatherly love!

Yes. Flat glass, no difference side to side. The hardware is side specific.

Hope you have a quick recovery. Flesh doesn't stop blades too well.

Pic was from about 4 years ago. Just showing why I have no feeling in some of my fingertips. You should have seen some of the other ones!

It is pictures like the one you shared above that pop in my head while in the shop. So far so good!
