No, the replacement rubber is very expensive, like $250 and I have found it to be less than acceptable in quality so I will be using the one I pulled from my parts car that the window came out of.

Back when I first got this car I was going to send the glass to
americanLT1 but it had some flaws and his car is as close to flawless as you can get! So he didn't want it, I am so glad now because I didn't realize how bad the glass in Marge was sandblasted. So this window out of my fourdoor parts car even with it's flaws will be much better. This is a driver, I am not so worried about perfection. I will urethane that baby in there and drive it.

I made the three different ones and that worked out great as the smallest was the best for my needs and that was not what I would have thought. I found a lot more rust than I had hoped but not any more than I expected.

Cleaned it up spot blasted and brushed on some of that Mastercoat primer. I figure if it lasted 50 years before I don't imagine I will be around in 50 years so it works for me.

As I was out there my wife came out to kiss me goodbye and mentioned the dark clouds. I hadn't seen them and holy crap, I about ran to get the car under the gazebo and Gran Sport in the garage and tools in and all and WHAM it was pouring.

It later hailed real hard and I thought for a second about how glad I was that I missed it and then thought, what the heck, I walked out in the hail with just a Tee shirt on and it felt so damn cool!

Got the rubber and the replacement window cleaned up, may get it in tomorrow but not a big deal, she's under the gazebo happy.

MARTINSR I got out there and put the heat lamps on Marge's rear window to warm her up and when and got a hair cut. Then ran off to Harbor Freight to get a couple of suction cups for the glass.

1971BB427 Simply gorgeous weather here today, and supposed to be dry and mild all next week too. Got out and changed the spark plugs in my BBC engine, and then got my little Austin out to check fluids, and get ready for our first Sunday breakfast get together tomorrow.
My buddy called this morning and said he took his gas tank back to the guy who welded it, and had it repaired. They did a air pressure test afterwards, and sprayed it with soap to check for leaks. Got home and put gas back in it, and it began dripping again! So it's coming out again, and going back for another repair on the same spot. Not sure how it's passing the air/soap test, but leaks with gasoline?

Good luck with the job Henry.

I saw one Impala going for the Riddler award where the whole frame was stiffened up with thick metal, the entire floor bead rolled/custom/ and it will even have hydraulics and pin striping/art work on the frame. There was a chassis that's going to some big show where it's actually based and cleared and buffed to show car spec. It was unbelievable. The work they do there is just mind blowing. Makes the last shop I worked for seem like a hack shop. They have a Mittler bead roller with 100's of dies and can make any die/shape needed. I hope I get the job. I think they liked me. So today I will put my bike together and take some pics. At some point I will paint the red parts again but not now.
Good luck Henry. That really sounds exciting.

My preacher would remind me, there is no such thing as luck.
