It would have been easer with a coppy. What I need then is a cardboard cut out, preferably from a laundry detergent box. Screw a side pannel from the box to the place where your pice needs to be screwed to, making sure there is a screw for every hole, and cutting away the excess cardboard as necessary, then trace the opening of the window. Next take another scrap of cardboard and cut a slice in it on one end, only as deep as your plastic beading. now slide that cut over one lip of the beading, cutting away the necessary amount of cardboard so that the cardboard no longer bends as you push it over but still tuches the inside and outside of the lip while just tuching the bottom. What your making me is a debth and thickness guage, and it suld look something like a tuning fork when you are done. The next piece I would need is a simular guage, but of the window channel. Place it 90 degrees to the window channel and cut away untill it fits snuggly at all points, this cardboard will look somthing like your poarch steps viewed from the side with three steps; step one being the post of the car, step two the window channel, step three aproximatly the window pane. And I will need one more cardboard of the inside radius of the rubber that holds your window, or window hardware in.
