Post window felt

I bought all new felt moldings for my 46 chev. coupe and am having a hard time figuring out the best way of installing them. The factory stapled them but I don't have a staple gun that will shoot thru metal. Does any one have any alternatives? Thanks for any help.....Glennk <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

The beauty of spending a little extra cash to buy the kits is that they come with all the fasteners to install them and are already bent and curved and cut. I'll never buy another stick again unless I have a car that no kit is available for on the market.

48fordnut: What size rivets did you use? I have 1/8 but I was looking at trying to find 3/32. Is that what you used?
Pasadenahotrod: I know what you mean. I think the hardest part is going to be the rear quarter windows. The rest are pretty much straight..I didn't know that they came all bent in the kits or I would have done that......Thanks guys for the info. I appreciate it.....GlennK

Where can you get the kits?

I need to put new felts in my windows ... and I was looking at some on a web site (Watson's Streetworks or ChevyDuty.com - I forget which) but the pics left me confused ... a kit sounds like the way to go for me, but I haven't seen any yet.

The manufacturer of the Re-Pops brand of window channel kits is in Oklahoma City, OK. It is a division of Obsolete Ford Parts.

I use tiny #4 flat head, phillips, sheet metal screws. 1/4" or less long. These bury into the fur and don't show but are easily removed when desired (repaint, etc.). Use them for the fur strips around widow glass and upper corners of window channels so if the glue lets loose, they stay in place.

Thats a GREAT idea! I was just going to use glue but I will use both.
Also what do you use to put the glass in the frame in the old chevys?
I got new vent window glass but need to use the old frames.

Epoxy or rubber or something?

Glass shops have an thin, uncured, semi-solid rubber sheet that is cut in strips just for this purpose. They would probably just give you a few feet of it for your windows. It is a couple of inches wide - just lay it on the channel and tap the channel on with a rubber hammer. Holds tight until you need to change the glass when it allows the channel to be tapped off fairly easily.
