Methinks.... Dan and I got my windows set up pretty well Until you came along.... We both missed the "stop" and bolt..... Always wondered how the nylon guides wouldn't eventually push the window frame out a bit... Now I know....

Just added a half inch to my nylon bushing attachment... to make them stop at the metal plate up high...

In reply to # 1513169 by TheZster Interestingly enough.... the spacer nylons in Dan's photos (which I believe are a much earlier model) - do not coincide with my nylon spacers at all.... (Dan's are 69??).... My 78 spit uses a single spacer on the outboard side.... and the triangular (kindasorta) piece has a "node" that fills the rest of the window channel on the inboard side....

They may have done late changes to those nylons. I did check my 69 against the 75 car and they were all the same pieces. I didn't look at the 78 as I didn't want to open the door panels on that one. Was just looking in the parts books again and see the part numbers are the same for the Mk3 and all the 1500's, but they do all show it as a single piece. Maybe it is my 2 69's that are weird by having that piece be a double piece.
Now I'll have to go open another one to see what it is it for sure, perhaps the 72, it is already partially dismantled.

Glad to see you and Geoff are both getting them straightened out. We can always use more hands on specialists.
