I unfortunately broke the rear window on my 69 Caravel
No big deal, remove the frame and bring it to my auto glass place.
3 weeks later (-$75 for the tempered glass) the window and frame are back and I can install.
Problem #1:While installing I notice the frame is pulling apart..Mmmmm.
Check it out and the guys at the glass shop drilled too large a hole and bisected the metal corner bracket that holds horizontal piece to vertical piece. Again, no big deal, I fabricate a new corner bracket out of a large gauge nail (bent at 90 and ground down to proper size).
Problem #2: While installing, the window does not seem as free moving as before and kind of hovers an inch out from flush against the trailer. What's more annoying is that even when I manage to get the window flush against the jamb it is approx 1mm lower than it ever was...causing the window lock clasp to but up against the jamb. How can the window be lower...the corners all seem square and tight.
ANy ideas on what has happened? It's a mystery to me.
thanks in advance,
