Can't find a thread that specifically address restoring quarter windows for my 2nd gen. You know, rubber gaskets, rollers, etc.

Is there one out there?

Kind of like this but for quarter windows:

I want to completely rehab the quarter windows since they are currently out of the car.

Thanks for your help!
Hey Mark, I did this one for my 63,

it is pretty straightforward as far as replacing the glass set tape, which I got from C2Only.

I did see that thread, Greg. Very nice!

I'll look at my winders closely tonight & see if the 1st gen stuff is applicable to 2nd gen.

Thanks for your response.

I'm unsure how to remove these nylon rollers (?) if I had to. They pivot, but should they roll?
Anybody know anything?

Yep , I had to change some of mine. Their is a special wrench to remove the part with the 2 holes but I made one easy. Just soak the threads first.

Do the swiveling plastic pieces (on the side opposite the piece with holes in it) just snap on?

Mark,

The plastic roller is attached to a threaded portion that extends through the glass, where the other part with the two holes screws on to it. I found that by using some PB Blaster, I could gently tap the part that moves with a punch and hammer. Once it loosened up it spins easily. Or you could fabricate a type of "bung wrench" to fit into both holes to spin it off. Hope this makes sense!

Makes perfect sense. I'll give it a shot.
