Greg this is nauseating is there a point here somewhere?

~ Patience must we have ~ OBD-One Kenobi

so lets take a look at both of these cranks under our EyeCroScope

notice the meatier wall around the hole opening on the old crank, that is good for strengthtability but no so good for insertability, but notice the larger hole opening on the new crank that slides right on the new regulator, but I doubt it will last as long

in the second pic I try to show that the rataining clip goes on closer to the edge on the new handle (left) than on the old one (right)

You and yourself sure do argue a lot. I think you two (one) need relationship counseling or something.

I love your writing style. It reflects the way a lot of us actually go about our thought process! And now, how do the windows roll up and down?! Lol

Thank you, I try to be entertaining and still send a message across or make some point. I hate dry monotone Videos or Posts / Lessons.

One thing I don't do is lie or BS, so get this, the darn window rolls up the same way, maybe a little easier, but definitely won't pass the Pinky Test. I am thinking all the new window molding I shoved in there a few months ago needs to get acqueinted proper first, that or the tracks are bent or misaligned, maybe I will look at both sides again some day, maybe when I rehang the doors. Any tips/advice?

Did a bunch of cleaning and salvaging on some 68 cougar interior pieces.. (I know not a Chevy.. but have a 79 K10 I'm working on as well) Normally probably would have just had it recovered.. but you inspired me to make the old new again!

On your window track seals, did you trim them around all the areas where the door support structure interferes with the strip?

Talk to me Goose! I did not trim anything, so the short answer is no, but honestly I don't know which areas you are referring to, could you show a pic maybe.

Note: I am using Bakerfields finest 805 lubricant, but any bottled goodness should work you may want to avoid the Lite viscosity

in the spirit of Run what you Brong' we primered the belly with some left over primer over rust stuff, until we ran out of product

the top got covered in some left over high temp engine primer, totally unnecessary but again that's what we had on hand, and I wasn't going to fork out any more $$$ (pronounced Duckets) on this "cheap" da$h board repair

some touch ups required, but remember it aint got to be perfect I don't recon cause its going to get covered in textured paint which I hope will mask / hide some imperfections

Textured Paint Makes Me The Body Man I Ain't!
