so im back with a new question, how the fawk do i put the window in the channel for the regulator. i put the rubber part on the window, first dry diddnt work then with soapy water. i took the window out and did this.

i put the rubber part, then try to push the metal part on, i feel like im gonna break the glass by doing it, the book says use a hammer, so im tapping it with a hammer, its kinda soing a see saw effect. anyway i kinda get it on like 3/4 and then i bolt it to the regulator, it goes up fine, then i try to lower it, it falls off, i hate this design!

when I did mine I used a rubber mallet to beat the glass into the channel. I thought it was gonna break too but when I finally resorted to the mallet I was already pissed so I beat the living hell out of it until it seated down all the way. I stood the window upside down on the carpet and just wailed on it.

I didn't use anything at all, just brute force. When mine was all the way seated there was no way in hell I could even almost get the shit apart even if I wanted too.

We use silicone spray at our glass shop, really soapy water would probably work fine too. On our own rigs, we just don't use the rubber, instead we put it in the U with urethane, like we put windshields in with. 400+ lbs holding power, doesnt come off until you want it to or the window breaks.
