Well, It's not mine. It belongs to Doug Shin. He had the glass cut and holes drill at the glass shop. I don't know if he had it tempered or if it's laminated. Beautiful job. The whole truck is a work of art. By far my favorite Econo. I wish it was mine.

Thinking best to get just the built channel alone from you??:cheers:


The glass gasket is a tight slip over piece of molded rubber....

Hi Donivan I am not using the original rubber I am wrapping the glass with silicone tape then installing into my frame it is a very tight fit. I will get some pics on that when I set the next window. The stuff I use is called "Wrap It" I got it at auto zone it worked great being silicone flavor it is very hard to tear.

I got 4 windows with those kind of latches. Guess they must be the early version??
Most of the ones I have (or have seen in JY) got the other style.

Hey VC,

I looked into rechroming my latches but they said I'd have to take them all apart, meaning drilling out the rivets. And I think it would be about impossible to find replacement rivets the right length, and with the different diameters on the shank vs the end. I did drill out the one rivet that holds the latch to the window frame bracket. Right now I've just put bolts in there with self-locking nuts.

So, you can powder coat with them assembled? Sounds like a good option. What happens where the parts overlap? Did you have to remove the chrome coating first? And they are always covered with surface rust.

BTW, I think they switched to those "rounded" latches in 1966. And they are interchangeable.

Vanagain.... Thats the nice thing about powdercoat, The parts are charged with electricity to make the powder stick to the part so it gets in all the nooks and crannys and it is such a thin layer it covers really well. I sand blasted the latches first to get the high spots of the chrome and to achieve proper adhesion.. Real quike I didnt spend to much time blasting just hit the chome to rough it up. use caution around the spring steel. I also gave them a rust inhibitor bath before blasting to remove the rust it worked great on that spring steel. So the powder is like plastic dust when you bake it it melts togeather awsome stuff. so this is the way to go. You could not paint these parts without them sticking togeather it would be to thick in all the wrong places. As soon as the parts have been baked it is super hard you cant fingernail the paint if you know what I mean..... Time only will tell how it holds up but I think its all good as long as air cant get to the steel it wont rust.. The silver chrome I used matches really well with the frames also.

VC Do you think you'd be able to powder coat the frames you are making?
I'd be interested also, possibly 6 so I can add to the rear doors.

Chevbone you should be able to powder coat the frames. As long as the oven your cooking them in is large enough. I dont think you will want to powder coat when you see them the frames really looking pretty good . Im just waiting for my glass setting tape so I can finish mine then I will post when I will be ready to make them for you. Im supposed to get this tape somtime this week.
