Can anyone tell me if the windlace starts all the way on the bottom of the door frame or just a couple inches below the first screw hole on the trim?

I started mine at the door frame bottom only because it appeared the few remaining remnants of the original hinted that was the way it was done at the factory. The kit I used included enough material to do it that, with a a few inches to spare, as well.

Like to see some pics of your work. I have a 49 that has no seals are on the doors and I'm getting a lot of wind noise.

On my 46 3/4 ton, all of the screws that hold the door windlace in place are still the original clutch head type. Do they have a machine thread on them or a sheet metal screw type thread. It would be nice to keep it original as possible, but if I ruin some of them taking them out, are they available thru any of the truck vendors. Or have a lot of guys just switched to a more modern type screw.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Tom

They are most likely 8-32 machine screws, placed in 18 gauge sheet metal. Use the proper clutch head bit or screwdriver to remove them, after you have cleaned any excess rust/junk out of the head. If really rusted, treat with penetrating oil. If you do all of that, you will likely retrieve all of the screws intact. In the event you damage some, vendors like Jim Carter will sell you a bag of 100 screws that are proper size with clutch head. Be sure to chase all of the holes with a tap when you re-assemble.
