Reinstalling window 72 Safari

As newbie as a newbie can be. Put on my big boy pants and got her down to skin and bones. I had one side window that was in the way while polishing (truth be told, cleaning,) the inside window frame. I tilted the window up, and voila! the window came off easy as pie.
Of course, it started to rain a couple hours later. My better half and I struggled to get the window back in place, and after standing on a ladder for 1/2 an hour in the rain, I managed to get cardboard over the hole.
So what is the secret to getting the damn window back on? We need to pull the front window to replace the rail it rides on, and of course, put it back too.
I suppose we could just take all the windows out, and have natural air conditioning, but that poses a problem when it rains/snows.

Thanks in advance.

Sometimes the Windows bow in the middle after being removed. It usually takes two people to reinstall, one holding the window near vertical and the other to push the bow back toward the track. You are not the first person to have trouble with this. After a couple of times you will have the procedures down pat

Thank you very much. My better half, an engineer, tried to get me to do that. Shoulda listened.

We just bought a 23' 1972 safari and have arrived in Santa Barbara from Ontario, Canada. We experienced a leak in the front window. Any advice on how to repair?
