Re: Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Thanks Tom. I took a second look at the old stuff and sure enough, there was old glue on them. Dropping in the frame in the door is no cakewalk for sure, even with a second pair of hands. One thing I learned that I'd like to share is this. Before dropping in the frame, pull the two long legs of the ...

Re: Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Tom, the "U" strips in the side window channels, do you glue these in as well? It seems like the thing might be self adhering. Seems to me if you stuff the thing in and heat the frame some the tar like coating would mold into the housing and take hold. Am I overthinking it?

Re: Glass Polishing

Thanks Mike. We did it and it looks better, but the deeper scratches didn't g away sadly. Any thoughts on how to remove them?

Re: Copiglia clamps

The kit Tim mentions is good stuff except the finish is not period cadmium, it's that common blueish finish. This print shows the installation instructions, as well as the lengths for each size hose. Hope it helps.

Re: Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Thanks Tom. I kept the old pieces, they should give me some general idea of the length an the mounting holes are still in the doors.

Re: Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Appreciate the tip, Tom. Hey I have one more question. The fuzzy window scraper that mounts on the door's edge, do you mount that before dropping in the frame or after?

Re: Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Tom, can you remind me... is the window frame lowered into the door with the window already in it, or do you place the window inside the door then the two mate when the frame is half way in? I'm now talking about the up-down window, not the vent window. Thanks.

Thanks Tom. I chipped away a hard black something. It's probably been there since the beginning, probably similar to your stuff.

Question for Tom... Vent Windows

Tom, I see that you are putting together the window frames and glass. I have a question about the triangular (swivel) vent windows. Is there a rubber seal that goes between the glass and its frame? If not, how do you seal it? Thanks.
