  • Window felts

    When installing window felts in the doors and quarters does the upper rubber seal go from all the way across the top with the felt channels stopping at it or does it go between the felt channels with the felts going to the top of the door or quarter frame. Mine is a Victoria but any sedan might be the same.

    Good question. I installed the customer's side felts first, then the top rubber, so I went between the side channels.
    I did this about 20 years ago, so I hope it was right.

      There should be room above the felt channels for that strip to go on top from end to end

        Thanks, on the same line, the u shaped glass setting rubber for the doors and quarters has a little lip on one side of it. Does it go on the outside or inside of the glass?

            Mitch,The piece that holds the glass in the regulator channel. I found the answer in a April 99 Victoria Bustle. The lip goes on the outside. This has been a crash course on Victoria or Slant Window windows! There are also two little anti rattle bumpers that go on the door frame and garnish molding that the Early V8 vendors sell that are easy to overlook. Thanks to all for the help. This is quite a group of good people.

                removal of glass B-160 rear doors
                by richsfords
                I tried to search but no luck,
                I am sending my doors out for paint and want to remove the glass and cranks and such. Must the glass be forced from the track at the bottom? the felt tracks side need to come out at the same time?

                i finally got the Tudor painted and would like to begin assembling the window channels however it’s been almost a year since I took it apart and neglected to take adequate pictures. I purchased all new window felts and upper rubber seals the problem( if it is one) is that I have four wooden strips approximately 1/8 inch thick that appear to be shims that would go between body and back side of side...

                I'm replacing my door window and windshield glass in my 31 Sport Coupe. When installing the new felt channel is there a mastic that you install them with or none? Thanks

                Window felt track '31 coupe?
                by Mickey
                Is there a metal track installed in the upper door for the felt to fit into the way there is at the bottom or does it just fit into the door without a separate track installed?

                Installing Window Channels
                by JohnB15632
                Are there any instructions of installing the window channels? Where are they located in relation to the glass? Are they to be installed on center?

                1931 Tudor Rear Side Window Glass Installation
                by Nelson C
                Please advise how a new Rear Side large Window Glass should be installed on a 1931 Tudor Sedan.
                (The old window glass was broken so the old window channels just slid out. Also, the upholstery panel, window moldings, window riser, and rear seat have been removed.)

                Should the new window channels and glass be slid in as one unit?
                Or, should the window channels be installed first,...

                door window track
                by Dave hummell
                I got a question about the rubber and felt window track. I am messing around with 32-34 ford doors, and I am just looking in to restore the doors, so I have windows that roll up and down I see kits advertised by a few different dealers and Moss looks like the best price. Should I get a kit or buy straight fits all parts? When I'm not Shure about something I always ask for suggestions. Thank you.

                Yesterday I put the door glass and new felts in my Victoria. The driver side glass is hard to raise and wants to come up up crooked, lower on the back side. I lubed the channels with graphite but it still is the same. Any ideas?
