I did, and they fit great and look nice. I used Steele rubber weatherstrips. Highly recommend both.

Thank you for that! My original glass is still intact but shows its 66 years of age. So I'm debating an upgrade while I have my doors stripped for paint. I was concerned about the fit.

mark, the rear windows on my panel had some notable scratches in them and since I was not going for all original I took the two glasses to the local tint guy and for 20 bucks he put a tinted film of my choice on them and they look nice...and have for the past 5 or 6 years. Just a thought...and you don't even notice the scratches.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks Alvin! I'll give it some thought. One glass has a deep scratch from a wayward RAS that an over exuberant body man inflicted sometime in the past. Current dilemma is whether to repair my original external handle or buy a new one and modify per your tech tip. Either way, door paint and reassembly needs to be completed in three weeks as the Suburban needs to be in Tucson by that time.
