Thanks for this! Just decided tonight to tackle it on my 81. Got the drivers side done, still need to do the passenger later on in the week. Also found some nice rot at the very back corner of the window that I need to fix. Not sure exactly how Im going to go about that part yet....

Where'd you guys get your non-Landau 1/4 glass? It took me weeks of posting to find one and even then it took two tries to get a tinted driver side...

When I did mine I posted an ad in the parts wanted section. Mr.Maliblu hooked me up with the quarter glass and the outside seals!

Tommy, I have not found mine yet but will start my search after I'm done doing all the repair work and spraying the car.
