I'm guessing that I'll need to pop the tack welds on that passenger door to get the glass and regulator out before I finish the top of the door.

Does anyone have experience with chopped windows in this era of a truck? I think it's about a 3.5" chop (but it could be more in order to rake the roof).

I'm also looking for some guidance in sourcing the frame for the front windshield.
As far as the glass goes I found it best, to just take it to a glass shop, they know what they are doing, can cut the glass, put it in, and save you time and trouble. and the price will not be as bad as you think. JMO
