so tonite i decided to start my swap from slider windows to the solid ones. i like the clean look of the solid windows. one side of my truck looks really nice, at nite, so you can't see the interior! it'll be really great when i get all the interior squared away and it's not a combination of black, white, grey, blue, and red. (my previous windows were tinted, these are not). i love the added visability! anyway, here's my question: when i was putting the locking seal/ring/doohicky back in, i ended up with nearly a foot too much! this was not new stuff - it was originally in the window seal and i'm concerned that by stretching it, it would have decreased in diameter, making the window not fit as tight as it should. should i be concerned? or should i cut? i was thinking i could lube it up with a bit of oil and maybe the tension in the line would help it pull back some. any thoughts?
