    We got the quarter window glass in yesterday. CCBF4302-3D47-4B96-BD8E-FFBE31CFE52001D99FAC-F969-49ED-865C-2289CFFC9E46

    We were missing the divider bars for the quarters. JJ has a rough pair that we’ll use to get everything fit until replacements arrive.3D06FE7B-B33F-4FA4-8B7E-7CE570C1B7AE

    Moved onto window mechs. Looking through the manual we learned about something new. Anyone used brake cylinder paste before?5C0DF5B6-A8D6-48C4-B10F-ADED7EF35883

    Drivers side window mech was slightly bent and missing a roller. JJ had one of those in the stash also. 1D50177C-CFFF-42DE-A6BB-966E657002FBAB0DB818-D443-499E-A111-6F9A50A5A84D

    Were gettin’ there….Going to get door glass in today. ….We started talking about a first drive later this week!

    Had to replace a couple of broken/stuck window adjuster screws. Was able to get them out from the backside. Made a couple of new ones.205D3E31-5548-4AB3-A533-2FE51A48F416409F6AC0-966C-4B6C-A40F-D5724099473287A91C0E-5E9B-42B3-A257-1B03E0134F5D

    Window mount/lifts were rusted out and had broken bolts. Juan had replacements with 1 good gasket. Made a new gasket and got them together.5F0FFA0B-D115-4015-92D6-9BD3EDBEF9080240B924-90E1-4E41-9BD3-9A2A6BE57C13D9046694-173E-4E42-90F8-24C732E31266
