Default Model a rear side and rear glass install

Hey everyone I am looking for directions or even better pictures on installing model a glass on my 1931 ford tudor sedan. I have all the material to install the windows including the glass. Just wondering if anyone can share some insight or pictures would be great as well.
Thanks again.

The rear window has a rubber seal that is installed around the edge of the glass. The glass is held in place with the rear window garnish moulding. The garnish moulding will screw into the wood around the rear window opening. The side windows have regulators that allow the side rear windows to roll up and down. the glass is supported and rides in a felt lined channel attached to the sides of the opening. The glass is set in a metal rail with adhesive strip and attaches to the regulator.

I am doing a 37 Ford tudor. Putting regulators in the back.
N2, does the regulator and channel go in first or do you put the glass in the channel first?
Thanks, Doug

I wish somebody would answer this, i am trying to figure out how to put the rear side glass in a model 'a' tudor and short of taking the roof off i can't figure it out! It is a chinese puzzle, you can put either the window channel felt or the glass but not both.

Never worked on your car, but have 15 years auto glass experience.

Pretty sure you install the glass and attach it to the regulator, then roll it down about 1/2 way. Lubricate the channel run with soapy water and feed it down the channel and around the glass. Then hold the channel run to the glass and roll it down. when it bottoms out, hold the channel run to the body, and roll the window up.

Work on each side evenly. Repeat as necessary.

When the lengths are even and just about to seat across the top of the glass into the body, roll the window all the way up, then all the way down. Tug at the channel run upward so it is fully seated in the body and relaxed, packed into the channel securely instead of stretched into position.
