    I'm putting my windows back into my removable top. I have the full length, non sliding windows. I am wondering do I use anything on the seals. If so, which side. Window or top side of the rubber seal. Appreciate the help.

    Nope, just get your window rope and pop it back in.

    get the tool to put the rope in (my dad brought his home for work, and the rope was installed in about 2 minutes) and use plenty of WD40 or Soapy water.

    Not to hijack the thread, but can someone point me toward a good source for those side window rubbers? My 85 has non-sliding side windows and the rubber has chrome trim in it. Chrome is all rusted to hell and the rubbers themselves look like they are starting to rot.

    Would love to replace them with solid rubbers, no chrome trim, and tint the side windows while I have the glass out. Any sources / part #s would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    looks like about $50 for the ones with the black lock strip.

    Can anyone give me an explanation of this rope trick to get my seal in? Do I just lay it in, put the top and bottom of the seal in and then use the rope to pull the seal flange past the window seat?

    You pretty much got it straight. Lay the cord/string in the channel then place the bottom of the window inside the lip of the window opening. This is the part where a friend can help. Have the friend push on the window from the outside while you pull the cord/string towards the inside of the opening. The rubber will be pulled in by the cord/string. It's pretty slick and really rather easy. Good luck to ya.
