I now have a new windshield (actually replaced it before the Truckstock trip), a new rear window, new side and vent windows, new window seals and felts, and new division bars for the side windows. Everything looks MUCH better and much more airtight. No more rattle, rattle everywhere. And I guess I'm now part of the club that hates those stupid little metal clips for the anti-rattle felts. I also replaced the lift channels for the side windows. I really had to "persuade" that glass, channel rubber, and the channel itself to come together with a rubber mallet. Kind of makes you nervous. The most time consuming part was disassembling the vent windows so that the new rubber seal could be installed between the outer and inner frames.

It's good to hear it made a noticeable difference! That's one of the things I keep putting off on my '65, and I just know once I do it I'll wonder what took me so long...
