Hello everyone I,m new to the forums, I,ve been working on my 53 commander for about 4 years , the frame is painted and running gear finished, body is painted and back on the frame, I drove it from my big garage to garage under my house, so I,m well into this thing, buffed the dash today looks great, ready to install the headliner, so far I haven,t needed any help, but these wing windows are working me over, has any body out there put the wing glass itself back into the chrome with new window set rubber, thanks for any help.

Joe, this is the time to check and replace the vent window pivots if they're broken. Then I folded the new window set, molded it as much as possible to match the original form, placed it over the class, held the glass on edge on a carpeted table, and used a rubber mallet to tap the stainless frame onto the glass, starting at the inside corner. Hold your breath. Dan
