Default 1965 Mustang Door glass install

Hi all. Having a bit of trouble refitting the door glass's in my 65 coupe. I've fitted a million jappa door glass's but this one.... I've fitted the 1/4 glass and frame, fitted the top felts (not sure I should have), Is there a trick to fitting the glass? The back of the door has a cut out which looks like the bottom of the window frame but it won't go in!

Help please....

Default fun stuff

been a while, but on rear doors that still have quarter glass, the large piece must always go in first. But the quarter track has to already be in, held by hand in a position up and a few inches (and in or out side of door frame,depends on car)to make room for the main to go in... Then move main to rear of door( no rear track yet) and work quarter into final spot and tack with bolts. Now slide main forward into quarter track and tack onto regulator. then snake in rear track and bolt up and adjust. this works on most newer cars but may be something i missed for older car like this. Hope this helps.

Like someone else said, the large door glass must go in before the vent glass. Ideally, it would be nice to have the felts removed as well, but since they're already installed, you may be able to work around them.

Feed the front of the glass through that cutout in the rear of the door, being careful not to scratch the paint with the metal frame on the bottom of the glass. It may be helpful to remove the stops from the window glass, but this is optional, and you can pretty easily work around it.

Once you get the door glass in, then install your vent window and then install the window track at the rear of the door. After all that, install the regulator.
