removing the wing windows 4 good

Hi, I am restoring my 68' GTO and will be doing some custom body, interior, engine, engine compartment, and chassis work myself. I will be teaching myself the interior and body work. I have to learn sometime, might as well be now! The wing windows have got to go! They have already been bent so many times from people locking their keys in the car.

My question is this: How do I completely remove the wing windows and do it right? e.i. how do I do the window seals(felt), get custom glass, get the door panel to line up?

A referrence to a book on how to do it would be helpful as well.
Thank you.

Can you use the parts off a '69/70/71/72?

IIRC, those did not have wing windows.



You'll probably need the side window glass, in particular.

Thanks, but its not mine. Just a pic I found on the web to illustrate.

Wouldn't mind having one though. I always liked the '68's
