    Glass in gasket first, then glass and gasket into the opening. From the inside of the cab. Do a search of the forum for windshield or glass installation. There have been several in the last month or two that will explain in more detail, especially with regards to sealing. That B/G install is an easy job. Shout back if you need more help.

      My Classic Car insatlled a rear glass in a pick up on Monday or Tuesday, on Speed. Sometimes they repeat the same shows on the
      weekend. Was well worth watching.

        The Shop Manual details the procedure. If you don't have one it's well worth the investment. $20 for a new hard copy; sometimes cheaper on Ebay, sometimes not.
