Well, why I am awaiting further clarification on that, the mailman arrived.

Those two hubcaps I bought from FB Marketplace came in. These are very decent ones for what I paid for them. I just need to find at least one more, preferably two.

Also, some shiny parts from the Dallas Zone Office arrived. Thank you to the Master Partsman there.

Which begs the next question, does anyone reproduce or have a stash of the red hex bumper bolts?

Hmmm... beginning to wonder if there was an upper and lower run. I've seen that on other cars.

The factory plate shows that steel lower channel, unless I am looking at this incorrectly.

I think I may go for this from Restoration Specialties, half the price of Steele Rubber.

The RetroBelt website has a page that shows how to measure for the right length. This number changes depending on how tall your seats are, where you're going to mount them, and the girth of the passengers.

So, I am a little perplexed on the division window channel.

When I pulled it apart, there was only a window channel in top area (yellow line). One side had a stainless beaded channel, and the other side had only a plain rubber channel. Both, I am sure, were later replacements as there were not affixed in any way. Just wedged in there. There are holes for rivets or screws, which were not used.

The steel channel (orange line) had no channel in place. But there are two screw shafts holding it to the stainless structure. The heads of those fasteners appear to have been sheared off. So I wonder if there was an original channel in there that was removed, which sheared the heads off.

I can't imagine there wouldn't have been a felt or fussy channel in that area as that edge of the glass would be exposed when rolled down.

The top part measure approx 9/16 in width, and the bottom portion approx 1/2 in width.

Checking Steele Rubber's website, they list this:

https://www.steelerubber.com/rigid-run-channel-30-0245-57

Which is 9/16" wide and 30" long. Sold in pairs.

So given that, is the lower section (orange) just remnants of an old channel that should be removed? And the Steele Rubber goes from the top to the very bottom? (red line).

If anyone with a 37 115c, 37 120c or 36 120b convertible couple can shed some light, I would appreciate it, as I need to order something soon.

While the windows are being worked on I figured I'd start clearing up the frame and track.

I had to really pry the hard weatherstripping out of the perimeter of the vent window.

When I did that, these little metal pieces fell out. Are they shims? There at the top portion of the frame in the channel between the side of the rubber and the inner channel wall. 2 on one window, and only 1 on the other.

Also, I noticed that one window had stainless beaded window channel and the other one did not. The channel stops at this metal track. Is it supposed to stop there? Or was this replaced and cut short? Someone check me that the channel is supposed to be 5/8" wide by 1/2" tall.

I'm going to derust and paint what steel I can and then polish up the stainless. I have all new seals waiting to go in.

No, I didn't. If you look at the picture, I made sure the "dynamat" was well inboard of the door panel clip holes. This was to make sure the door panel still laid flat along the edges.

Glass "should be" done on Friday. Quoted price out the door was $275. That was to pull the old glass, and use that as patterns. Make the new glass, grind edges to match old, and reinstall in the frames.

I think the price is reasonable.

I thought David replied that glass setting tape was all that was needed. Or are we talking about something else now?
