Window gasket question

HI guys,
I finished welding the 12 inch extension in 46 chevy cab.
I made a side window from 4 door windows parts so door and side window wood look the same. My question is what will I need to install the gasket and what gasket will I need for the glass .
If I use a gasket like the back glass has I will need a 1/4 inch lip around the in side of window. But I'm afraid the door window,and side window with gasket in window opening may not look right.
Any help or opinions will be helpful.

A rubber moulding around the glass is the normal way to retain a fixed glass in an automobile. You might do it like early Fords, use a u-channel rubber around the perimeter of the glass which would seal against the body flange inside and be held tight by the window moulding. This style of rubber was used on Fords from 28-36 on quarter windows and back glasses.

Good idea,your right about thick ugly rubber, came up with suggestion for you.How about a window like pickup,xtended cab that pivots out.The hinges drilled in the glass ,all the rubber is behind.Trying to think of a smaller car with that type window.Also makes for good ventilation or you could run a door edge moulding around the opening and weld some tabs inside cab to clamp the glass tight to sealer...........good luck
