I have a '48 Chev. 3100 and am in the process of installing the Windlace and seal around the perimeter of the door jamb. ( what a thrill) I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere here, but I had a difficult time finding the answers to my questions.

The Windlace and seal, front and back both curve to the inside of the cab at the bottom, then secured.
Also meeting up with the Lower Cab Seal and Retainer, plus the rubber floor mat. How do this all get sandwiched together?
Like to be able to access the battery and brake reservoir with out having to remove it all again, once is enough, lol.

I've thought about putting a notch in the floor mat to go around the windlace and seal.

Any ideas or photos would be great.
Thanks
Jeff

The stock configuration of the floor mat is for it to lie on top of the lower windlace retainer. I believe that the upper windlace bottom ends are to cut match the contour of the lower windlace rubber.

Attached are three photos of the windlace installation in my '48 Chevy 1/2 ton truck. Hope that you find the pictures helpful.

If you need any other pictures or information, please feel free to post here or send me a PM. Best wishes!

Ahh yes the worst job on any 1947-55 restoration. Inch worming that rubber next to the dash is a pita. Your fingers will feel like noodles of spaghetti when you get done.

Great photos, those help immensely! Thank you


sstock, I know the spaghetti feeling you are referring to!

Now to get the door to close will be my next task at hand, if it's not one thing it's sure to be another. Hopefully this madness has a happy end to it all!

Thanks again
Jeff

Jeff--

I know that you did not ask about this, but I offer these two photos to show the unique trim piece that ties together the upper windlace tail pieces and the headliner cross bow end for both sides. They were only used with the early AD trucks. Just ignore the business cards in the background; the headliner is behind them wink
