While getting ready to place the passenger side quarter window, I thought I should install the door glass. Doing this will allow me insure that the windows align and that they're set at the same angle. I am amazed that I found windows that match in curvature with glass from two different manufacturers across two different decades.

The S10 roof might work for the quarter window. I cut the roof in half and matched it against the roof B pillar. It's a good match for the pillar curvature but it needs help merging into the trunk deck and the rear window sheet metal. The back edge of the roof might make the turn.

The Malibu roof looks like it will work for the rear window sheet metal. It had better...I spent a couple of hours with a scrapper and Xylene removing the two adhesive strips from the underside of the panel.

I dug the roof panels out for the S10 and the Malibu out of my scrap pile and separated the skins from the bracing in each piece.

Played around a bit with the new quarter window glass.
