Default 1966 Mustang Fastback Door Window Installation

I didn't want to step on an existing window thread, so here goes...My paint shop took out all the door windows including the wind wings, and window channels, and felt strips. I have the 2, 2 piece channels, and 2 boxes of fastners. Does any one know of a step by step procedure for installing the hardware, the vent windows, and the windows that identifies what fastners go where. Do you install the felt first or last, window before the wing wing, etc. I've seen the diagram in the Ford manual and it's not detailed enough. I figure worst case, I can take it into a Mustang restoration shop..... or maybe my next door neighbor might be will to pop a panel off his '65 coupe! Also, when they replaced the 2 rear quarter panels, I went with the complete ones which included a portion of the side window moulding. The replacements do not include the "studs" that hold on the stainless side window trim. What now? Do I use the little screws the '65 use or what? I've got the original '66 clips and I don't think they're designed for the screws? Help!:kooky:

Bill, Make sure your door handle, locks, and door latch are installed first. Its been a while but I believe you want to proceed in this order;

-Your wing assembly with its leading edge door glass channel goes in first
-You rear glass run channel on the opposite end
-Your window ( remove rubber door glass stop at bottom of door inside)
-Window regulator

Adjust everything including wing assembly ( it helps to have 2 people and its a ***** to adjust) Make sure window operates smoothly and door opens and closes properly with proper clearance and no binding.

Then lower your door glass below the edge and install the inner fuzzie and then the outer strip and reinstall the bottom door glass stop.

The attachments will help you but you really should work with someone who has done this before becuase it is one of the most difficult things to do if you are not totally familiar. You also will have to re-drill some hole holes to install the fuzzies.

Glass is not my area of expertise. Maybe a pro will chime in on this

For what it's worth, I've never had to drill any holes to get the reproduction moldings/fuzzies to line up with the original door holes. It can be tough, however, to get the reproduction fuzzies to snap in place; seems like I can always get most of the clips to seat correctly, then I end up with one or two that are aggravatingly difficult.

RF, thank you for your input. Now I've got an idea what order I should proceed with.
