side window channels ford 34 coupe

Hi
Im new to this with bodywork. ive come this far in my build, that I bought a power window kit. Now I need channels for the glass and all that stuff. How do I mount the channels?
This is a 34 3 window coupe, and the fiber glass body is just a shell.
Should the channels be mounted in the outer doorskins? I believe so. And then I have to glue the skin to the inner skin first.
I really would like some photos if anyone have

Here you can see I have nothing to the door skins. I have to build it all from scrach. But I dont know how it should look. If someone have a similar car in parts, please snap a photo.
Thanks

Hi, and Welcome. If you click on this link, download their PDF and go to pg 21 they show a hot rod wing window delete kit. It may give you some idea of how it's done.

Good pdf there. But i find it hard to find stuff that fits early ford glass body. Most weatherstrips and hardware are for steel bodies.
But i have to sit in the garage doin some thinkin with a beer for a while...

On mine I got some window channel, went down to the steel supply got some channel that the felt channel fit in andIgot two pieces that would make one lope.

Now you must remember the felt channel for power windows is not the same as crank ups. I believe it is a little bigger. anyhow I took and put a couple of rivets to hold it in at the top. works good.

When you put in the steel channel you will have to put pie cuts in it for the corners. The felt channel you don't need the pie cuts.

You can get the felt channel in different sizes depending on your glass thickness. all that will have to be known before you get the steel channel.

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the body to see what they recommend or maybe they have a kit available.

Well. They dont have anything. They took over the molds from a small company that made casting from an old rust bucket in the 80's. Most builders back then used parts from old cars in the junk yard.
But this thread made thinkin again and gave me som ideas.
But still i would like photos.
The 34 is not that common here as the deuce 5 window.
Maybe i can use some ideas from them.....

Several power window kit manufacturers have kits for the 34 Ford. Look on Ebay for some or look at this link.

Maybe i have to buy the felt channels first and inner frames for the windows and see from there how to attach the channels. I will figure it out sooner or later. I skip the vent funktion that the original car had.

can it be wise to buy a channel kit and try to modify it to fit a glass car?
i found this from bob drake and others in the range 85-150 dollars

Window Channel Kit; fits - 1934 3 Window

or is it impossible to fit it in the fiberglass doors?

Magnus I used reviets on mine as the head is almost flush and you don't have to worry about putting marks on the glass.
