You don't need to remove any windows from a 65 in order to replace the window gaskets using the upgraded "D" gasket, which is far superior to the original bulb gasket.

some guy in California around 1931. Doing that goes back much further than 1965.

I had to remove anyway to clean up the corrosion on the frames.Can the glazing strips be replaced easily while windows are on?I did use the D gasket I got from Inland a few months ago and it is sealing tightly.However,When I ordered it I bought an extra 10 ft. in case I needed it.I checked the waste and it was only about 18in.I have 1ft. left and still 2 windows not done.

The gasket is supposed to go on the two sides and the bottom, of each window.
