    I just got a set of window sliders,and want to install them. I currently have solid glass. My question is will the window rubber I have for the solid glass fit the slider's?

    Thanks in advance /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I recently installed mine. The trick is to put the rubber on the truck top first, not the windows. Use a wooden paint stirrer to pry the rubber around the aluminum of the slider. The rope-trick works to a point, but it pulls out near the top and is useless after about half the rubber is in place. The rest of the way you have to use the pry-method with a wooden tool so as to not scratch the aluminum. Good idea to get them tinted first. I two rolls of the Wal-mart tint before I took it to someone who did it for $20 for both. It's real difficult to tint them because the glass is inset in the aluminum.

    Good luck!

    The trick to tinting them is to place the film adhesive side out, on the OUTSIDE of the windows. Then you trim the film to fit the glass and move back inside the truck to install it. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
