Smile installing door windows in a 65

Anyone have tips on installing door window glass in a 2 door 1965 Biscayne? I have the vent windows in but, do not have the window fuzzies or windows in yet.

I remember having trouble getting them out.......HELP!

Donnie

Sorry Donnie I have removed window registers in Novas and Camaros to replace with pull up Plexiglas, but never tried to install one. We all know taking parts apart we rarely concentrate on how we will reassemble them only in how fast we can rip it out. So aside from remembering it took a few nuts I don't remember much.

Donnie, I have done that a few times in fact pulled them all when I installed power windows. I wouldnt even attempt it again with referring to the service manual. It pretty descriptive and makes the job easier.

Do you have all the regulator parts in there, and just need to install the glass itself? Or is the door gutted?

Okay, well, if the regulator and all the track guides are in, it's just a matter of placing the glass in. If the glass still has the big "guide" (the piece that fits in the rear guide track), that will have to come off. Once that's off, the window should fit in the door. Once it's in, you can reattach the guide for the rear track. Then it's a matter of getting those window nuts and bolts in. So far I have the two rear in mine. I'm having a bit of trouble with the front one. My arms and fingers are pretty beat. Patience and perseverance (and a few beers) will go a long way. I can try and get some pictures of mine, but like an idiot, I didn't get any as I was doing it.

Hope this makes sense.

Donnie I know you are working alone, but try and see if you can photograph the procedure. You wouldn't believe how frequently this question comes up.

Yeah...and I tell myself that as I go to work on the car. I usually get the camera when I have a problem, but don't have it when just working on it. I can probably get some pics though, since I'm not quite done with mine yet. I'll get some this weekend.

Window fuzzie info

Most repo companies try to lawn off their fuzzies as the same part for both 65 and 66. The bead or chrome on the 65 is flat while the 66 is round. The sweeps are also different so ensure that you are getting the proper fuzzies for your car. A long while back I got mine from a company called repop believe it or not, they were almost dead on.

Paul......yep! I just got weatherstripping from Hubbard. What a waste of money.

I noticed something else....my window does not bolt on to the metal frame. It's put on with setting tape thus, I will have to install in one piece.

Donnie...I just got my window in. I don't have any of the weatherstripping or fuzzies or anything else in it yet. I'm just trying to get it all together to see what I need. I mean, besides EVERYTHING! Anyway, if you get started on yours again, and get stuck, let me know and I'll see if I can help. My window is in and rolls up and down perfectly. I do have another issue with it though which I'll start another post tomorrow.
