    I had to order a new gasket for the back glass, I had the double groove, needed the single groove.

    I polished the molding.

    My wife said that this is the last glass install for her....

    She said that the last time :)

    How are you preventing rust from developing under the windshield gasket? I've been trying to figure out whether the glass and paint has to be done at the same time or if there is a better way.

    The windows are fun , aren't they ?? I found the front much more nerve-racking , myself . Actually getting the seal to stay on the glass while I tried to get the stainless into the (single) groove might have been the most nerve-racking , LOL !!

    I used several heavy coats of rustoleum on the frame before installing the glass.

    Yeah rich that's what I do...use rustoleum or even etching primer. That's usually if I want to drive my rolling project. Now though, since the chop I'll do the process with putting through paint before the glass.

    It started as an S10 pedal from the junkyard, completely rebent/shaped, custom base to fit new pad, etc...

    OK, summer is over, back at it.

    I drove the car quite a bit over the summer, it drives really nice.

    I pulled the passenger seat out of the roadster and stuck it in the car.
