So while washing it last week I noticed I could push the windows in the rear doors in and out of their seals about 1/8th of an inch so I ordered some new window seals from Jerry.
I've wanted to tint the windows and it turns out so much better when the windows are out and on the bench. So I picked up my seals from the cross border parcel place, picked up some 5% tint from crappy tire, and drove to my dad's place for some help.
Once the windows were out, we cleaned them and placed them on our pool table. My dad started cutting the tint while I cleaned the lips on the doors. Once the tint was on the glass, it was the opportune time to head out to the pub for dinner, to give time for the tint to dry and fully adhere. When we got back it was dark, but the tint was properly adhered.
Then we slid the new seals onto the glass, and fed the rope in to the seal afterwards. I used cheap yellow 3/16ths nylon rope, but if I were to do it again I'd use 1/8th inch Paracord. While the yellow stuff worked, it was a little thick and the Paracord is smoother
And here the windows are all installed. I'll get some daylight pics tomorrow morning. Now I have to figure out how to get the side windows out of their track so I can tint them
And just for fun, a pic of my truck next to my dad's 91 2.8 5 speed. It's waiting for a new clutch...
