Of interest is all the vent holes on the inside of the frame - this is new since my truck was built. Hopefully this helps it breathe a little, and will make it a lot easier to give it the occasional spray of Fluid Film. I'm cautiously optimistic this one will hold up quite a bit better than my original. Also makes me feel better about opting for factory over the glass frame. Time will tell.
Rob's got it all seam sealed, and it's off to the body shop tomorrow for finishing and paint.
Stuff like this is why I love abandoning my truck in Rob's care. Guaranteed he peered at this crusty looking wiper arm assembly out of the corner of his eye enough times that he finally couldn't take it anymore...
Only thing holding up final assembly is 2 corner gaskets for the hardtop still in the mail... hopefully not lost in space
Getting close though. Should hopefully have it home in time to leave for Utah... in my 81
I changed the cracked windshield on my truck, now it leaks between glass and gasket and between seal and window frame. got some 3M sealant, 3M 08509 Windscreen Sealer, but wait for warmer days to put it.
