Progress / motivation has been slow of late due to other commitments but I have managed to refit the glass to the rear body panels this-afternoon. The sliding glass sections and latches have been reused but the window track in which they run has been bought up to-date.
The original track was made of thin steel and lined with felt and the best thing that could be said about them, is they propagate moss exceptionally well. When I stripped the vehicle down, the tracks were so corroded and swollen, the windows wouldn’t move at all and didn’t look like they had been opened for many years.
The new tracks are aluminium with rubber channels from Rocky Mountain Spares in Canada.
The same process was repeated for the drivers side.
