Re: 57 Fleetside C4 build

Just doing some little stuff on the truck while waiting on the bed strips. The truck came with reproduction vent frame and glass and door window frame and glass but were clear glass. I wanted tinted glass so ordered the tinted glass and installed them while rebuilding the vent window assemblies that came with the truck.

I have a question on the forward door window post where the vent assembly sits there is a hole a little more than halfway up. I need to know what that is for. Here are some pics including one of the mystery hole. Steve

As far as i can tell the hole in the vent frame is just to hold the rubber gasket in place .
if you notice on the gasket -a bump about where it fits into the frame -as you put it together -it;ll line up with the frame hole,
that;s the only thing i could come up with . also i use a dish soap and warm water to put the gasket in ---makes it easier to slide the gasket on .

Re: 57 Fleetside C4 build

Can't answer your question... But, What did you use to set the glass in the channels, and where did you get it? Thanks!

I used 1/16" window setting tape on the frame around the glass and 5/64" in the lower sash. I have since found out there is a pre made channel for lower sash. I got the setting tape at a local glass shop. I have seen the lower sash piece at classic industries and they also had the glass setting tape. Steve
