It’s been so long since I dismantled the truck, that I cannot remember where and how to attach the beaded window seal to the door… the old one has holes drilled in it, but the door doesn’t have any holes anywhere that match the old seal.

Does it go the outside or inside of the window? I’ve looked though Brad’s slides, but it isn’t in there.

Thanks for any assistance! A pic would also be helpful..but anything would be appreciated.

I believe those go on the inside of the window. IIRC, they were stapled on. I have my doors out in the shop, and can confirm that. The outside seal is the rubber one that slides into a slot below the window opening.

Thanks Kevin. I have looked at the shop manual, the assembly manual and googled several different searches and looked at many threads on this site, but have found no pics or discussions about these two seals… I just finished painting my doors and I’m ready to install them, but haven’t a clue as to how to install them or exactly where they go.

I took a look at my doors and can't see any evidence of staples, but I was sure they were stapled in place. But I don't have a stapler that would penetrate the metal anyway, so will likely use some sort of adhesive to put mine on. They definitely go on the inside of the window, basically to keep the dust out.

[on edit] I think we're looking in the wrong place for the staple holes. They attache to the inside window molding per this post. I can go look at my inside moldings tomorrow. They're out in the dark right now.

Thanks Kevin- that link was helpful. I do see that my kit came with staples. I’m also thinking now that I have the wrong assembly manual for my truck…. So the beaded window seal attaches to the bottom of the interior garnish, and the this rubber strip attaches between the bottom of the outer edge of the door and the glass….I’m still searching for pictures of this. Thanks again!

The felt scraper were "stapled" in place. Take a look at this youtube video , It really helped me a lot when I rebuilt my doors. There are a series of videos.

Jerry Kassick's videos are really handy. I watched his video on reassembling my vent windows and found it helpful. I should have thought to look there for the one that Ronnie posted. Thanks Ronnie. smile

Wow, thanks guys- that video was exactly what I needed for the beaded window seal. Sure enough, I found my inner garnish and there were the staple holes from the old seal…

That only leaves the outer dust seal (thin rubber strip)- [Edit] I found the outer dust seal in another one of his videos, of course! So I’m set for now. Many thanks!

There were no clips for the outer seal. The FAM (Section 14, sheet 14.00) shows sealing compound on the whole length of the rubber seal. Not sure what type of sealing compound was used, but I didn't see any evidence of sealant when I pulled the old rubber out. Must have disintegrated over the past ~70 years. I imagine something that is medium bodied (not too runny, but not too thick) would be OK to use.
