Hello

First a comment and then some questions as a new member to the forum.

Comment: Your two '37's in the garage, I like that picture. I have a 1937 115C, it has the "Six" emblem on the trunk lid, I see some with it and some without. It seems yours has it---maybe it was an option back in 1937??

Questions:
I am updating the doors, I would appreciated anyone commenting on the following:
NOTE: I have some new rubber parts from Steele
-Is it advisable to remove the front door? (seems prudent to get at the door seal on the front face of the door) Someone had glued a seal on, where it seems the factory intent is to use the welded on channel with no glue--right? With unique seal type across the bottom and another one piece covering the other 3 sides??
-I have a new vent seal---no issue so far
-The rear glass run is rigid and straight from upper rear corner to the lower end down inside the door near the latch, right?
-The front glass run behind the vent window is also straight and rigid from the top of vent window down inside the door, right?
-The seal at the top of the glass is what? It seems to have none--is that the factory intent? If there is a seal , is it glued in??
-The horizontal seal along the bottom of the glass opening is what? It seems like it might be accomplished by the seal that holds the bottom edge of the glass in to the channel on the window regulator, true>? Someone on this forum suggested black silicone as a modern day solution??

Any comments appreciated!
