Can anyone tell me what way this channel goes. Its from my 48 fleetline, but it has been 5 years when i took it out, now i cant tell how it goes back in the door. I think the end that has the angle part to it goes back to the back of the front door. I hope someone can help me on this, as i have looked at all kinds of repair books, and they dont show anything about how to put it back in. Thanks.

Sorry I can't help you out Mr.Wood.. We do have a member that was building a 48 fleetline.. Maybe he will answer it for you..

I still have not found out how to install my glass channel on my 48 Aerosedan. Sure wish someone could help me on this. I have even posted on other chevy forums, and no one can tell or show me how it goes on. Please someone help me on this.

What I do, sometimes when installing windows in a vehicle I DID NOT take apart is to try to install the channel ... without the glass. I will only go ( as a general rule ) one way. It usually become fairly obvious which way is correct.

If the door has a vent glass with a track on it. I would assume that the "L" shaped part would go to ther rear, and ride in the rear track.
Are both channels (L&R) removed?
Or just the one pictured?

Mr wood is it possible the way you have it sitting is like it goes,,Can the glass sit down inside where I have the arrow pointing.. If the top where I have the arrow pointing is shaped like a U that should be where the bottom of the glass sit's in..And the regulator bolts where I have the X's ?? And where I have the O maybe rides in either the front or back track.. Just a thought..If the top is shape like a U,, I think you may have it sitting right..Sometime where I have the O there's a piece of chrome that fits around the glass in ties into that spot..In it and the chrome rides inside the front or rear track..Not sure about your set up,, But just trying to figure this out for you..

What you have said is right as far as the glass, i just dont know if the L side goes like it shows, or goes to the back . I will just keep working at it, till i find what way it goes. It is going to take me most of the winter to get the car all put back together. I did finnish the dash today so all my qauges work, chrome is back on and all the swutches are hooked up and working. Just do a little bit each day, but its nice having paint on it all now. Just have to watch what im ding so i dont scratch anything as some parts are heavy when you are by tourself, but like i said i have all winter. Iv waited 5 years now so whats a bit more time. At least i redone this car from the frame up by myself, so im proud of what i have done so far. I will see my dream car done come this next year, and thats all that matters to me. Thanks again for everyones help on this project, you dont know what it means to me.Its not as nice as what you all build, but im happy with it.
