Can't move the top of the fender without moving the side. Go for smaller gaps. Whats the size of the door to qtr gap?

The qtr to door is a bit tight, approx 2mm, and the front of door to fender is about 3mm.
I think I may be able to giggle a little, but in reality I stuffed up with not having the trim in when I mocked the car up.
.
The lesson learnt is, find the car you like and buy it.....LOL.

Close it up the same as the rear and it may look ok.

Panel gaps on 60's cars were 3/16" (4.75mm). We checked and set them using a 3/16" screwdriver (#1 Phillips)

How do the front lower corners of your doors line up with the sills?

I'm using that as my starting point, with 5/16" door-sill gap and working back from there with my new rear quarters.

The lower front corners are good, I'm not really sure where I stuffed up the gaps as there was so much repaired/ repalaced, old parts new parts.
And possibly that fact that I have no idea of what I'm doing......

Well Done. What did you use to glue the glass in?

I cut up some of the old strip rubber into small pieces and used them to centre the glass and hold it temporarily. Then I used black window urethane to glue the glass to the steel Chanel.

Wooo hooo,
Got my quarter windows back from the chrome place. They did an excellent job as they were quite pitted. $360 for both, so not bad.
.




.
Now to put the glass in, then into the car.
