Warm the rubber up in a bucket of hot soapy water and it will give you a lot more pliable rubber, that may get you over the top.

I meant of course to heat up the rubber in hot water, then put it on the glass and install it. Using a thin rope of some sort is the way to go usually.

There are a number of videos on youtube that show it being done.

Front window and back window I already put in it is the side windows I am having a problem with. the ones in the back. The side windows are made different than the front they only have a small lip on the outside.

Don't want to bash a company, but more than likely they are Metro. ( would have been on the bag they came in. ) I blew $70.00 on a pair of vent window rubbers that turned out to be 1/4 " too thick, and 1 " too short...........had 1 " of daylight showing. Ordered another set from Filling Station ( Steele Rubber ) , and it was dead on. You could order a set, and compare it to what you have now, and if they are the same you could return them. But I have a feeleing I'm right.

After putting the rubber on the window, I put it in place and screwed the inside molding tightly against it, then used a plastic pry tool to work the rubber out little at a time. Used soap and water,and did the install by myself. Chevys of the 40s rubber. Rear (back) window seal from Chevys of the 40s would not work for me. Had to order one from Steele which worked out great.Hope this helps..

Maybe I worded it wrong, but I did use Cheyvs of the 40s rubber on the quarter windows. It was the back window I had the problem with the chevys of the 40s rubber. Hope this clears this up.
