Why scribe? I assume something to do with orienting the glass when you put it back in, or orienting the whole assembly on the truck?Tinker said:Spook -
Pull the division bars after removing screws AFAIK. Then spread the frame top to bottom & pull the glass out, one at a time. You can bend the glass a little, just don't exert any pressure on the edges, especially with a hard object like a screw driver or pry bar. Scribe each piece deeply where it won't show so you can still see it with the powdercoating., ideally with matching numbers at mating points.
Would like to find out how to get new weatherstripping for mine.

Hey euclid, how many sections of that weatherstrip did you order? How about single channel stuff for the ends of the frames?
I was assuming that the windows didn't slide all the way to the ends and that single channel would be needed for that. Nevermind, I figured it out thougheuclid said:2 lengths of it were just shy of enough to do the 2 windows. I used a tiny bit of the old stuff.
Don't know what you mean on the single chanel stuff... more info.
I don't see a reason to scribe them either. There is only one way the glass goes back in and latches correctly.
FYI, if you are going to tint the glass do it before you put the glass back in the frame. Tinted mine afterwards and it looks just a tinny bit better than crappy.

Thanks for the tip on the weatherstrip, Euclid!.
If you tint the glass before installing, be sure to leave it off the edges that go into the weatherstrip or it will come off as you use them & scrunch up the edges.
Euclid - tried to tear into my new ones last night... what did you do for the drain holes in gasket - when you used the new kind? Cut holes or let the new rubber block them?Had someone ask for clarification on the weatherstrip I used, maybe the tinyurl isn't working correctly.
