    Adding working side glass to sealed doors????

    Hey guys my doors/skins were sealed up with out any glass in them (stupid builder). I am now looking for a way to install working side glass on my G-28. I am planing on using AGP roadster glass for the sides. But I dont know what is the best way to approach this job. Do I have to reomve the door skins and start from there or can this be done with the door skins on the car? Is it possible to cut an opening in the top part of the door and work around that??Any advice would be a BIG help. Thanks

    Hey Kevin,
    You're very very lucky you have a roadster, because its the only one its possible on.
    You need to have the glass so you can make a template of the curvature, and then check it to the back edge of the window area to make shure its the same or close to the windows curve. If it is, you're in business! (it should be). All that really needs to be done is to cut a pocket in the door where the channel will fit, both at the front window frame area, and the rear. The tracks need to be parallel to each other, and should be glued in place while the glass is installed in them to assure this.
    Without talent experience is worthless

    Hey Mike Thanks for the reply. I think I see what you are talking about, but could you post a picture or two that I can use as a reference? This will be my first attempt at this and I don't want to get way off track. Also I do have a set of Thunderbird window tracks that I was hoping to use.Thanks


    PS. I will be getting with you very soon on the column. Thanks again
