Post subject: D&R side windows  PostPosted: Aug 24, 2007 - 02:31 AM

I am not getting the side windows to fit properly on my D&R coupe kit. The channels fit in the back but have too much curve in the front no matter how I position it. Anyone else had this problem and have a fix?

Mount the channels while the door is on the car (MOST IMPORTANT). Line up the channels with the upper part of the door frame. The bottom of the channels will be closer to the outer skin. Try setting one screw through each of the two side channels close to the top. Carefully slide in the window and move it up and down and let the glass tell you where the channel should go. Mark those locations and set a lower screw on each side. My first window took me over three hours to figure out. Once I got it, the second window went on fast.

That looks like a lot of work Dom. Usually D&R's fit without having to cut and reshape the entire door. I may have to cut and relocate the upper door post on the drivers side but I am going to try and pull it into place with my metal reenforcements first.

I took a chance and ordered new side windows from APG. I was correct, the problem was the windows I got when I bought my kit used were the wrong windows. The windows I got from APG were laminated and had to be cut but they fit perfect without major body work. Anyone know what window seals should be used on the D&R Coupe kit?
