on my truck they were riveted in with some special flat face rivets, when I replaced them I used special automotive adhesive made for that purpose.

I cut and bent the window channel and made sure it would fit, then glued everything and installed, held with some spring clamps after about an hour or so I installed the window assembly and rolled the window up as tight as it could go and let dry overnight.

BTW the squeegee part on the lower window are held on by screws, I had one that I could get out and went to the ACE hardware and bought similar tiny screws and drilled and installed the little screws.

This is the glue I used, I got it at Oreillys about $7 a tube, I bought a couple tubes used it for some other stuff on the truck, and to install the rubber gasket around both doors.

I bought my window channel and door gasket from Jim Carter Chevrolet, I took my remnants over there and were able to match them up, I bought a sun visor pad (about 1" size difference), the window channel, squeegee, weather strip and some small odds and ends. Back in the day there were only a few manufactures of that kind of stuff so most of it is very similar or the same. About half the cost elsewhere, if you need something let me know and I check for you if they need to see something it to match up.

if I remember right,they originally used little screws to hold it in.Last one I did,I used R model stuff and trimmed to fit. Didn't have the chrome bead,but worked for me.

yup, had little screws, if you use the wrong one that the head is too big it will chip the glass, trust me lol. I guess you could probably rivet them on. and the chrome beaded stuff doesn't seem to last like it use to, few years of mine outside and its all rusty, gonna use the generic black stuff next time

I figured there was some kinda clip that locked into door frame, as there are like 4 rectangular little cutouts in there.....guess Im a little slow.....took me awhile to realize that some small screws would work as well!!

on the door glass run channel up around the top of the window there was little clips that had burrs on them that the channel snapped into. I usually just glue it in there with weatherstrip adhesive. the window garnish or roll up wipers were screwed on to the door and the inside garnish moulding

Try these folks:

I know they have stainless steel beaded window channel and suspect they have the small screws and rivets.

They have been in business for many years.

I bought stuff from this place years ago for my H67. I could not remember the name but knew it was located close to Altoona. Thanks for the link!!

I got all my door stuff from that Jim Carter Chevrolet (old Chevy trucks), I tried the other people that is posted and I had no luck in dealing with them. On the items that he said he did have it was really expensive and when I was asking him questions seemed like I was bothering him.

Just spent a few minutes going through my records and found the receipt with part numbers, as you can see they are reasonably priced. >>Click on the PDF file to open<<

BTW I did not use the 3m adhesive on that truck, used it for something else and used the stuff from Oreilly's when I did the assembly
