Been a while-- So COVID knocked out the body shop employee and half his guys quit. The guys he has hired are more expensive and the second car he originally told me he would do for 16 is no longer a good price He said it will be more like 30.

Anyway he is finally putting mine together. And now I am the hold up because I am missing a bunch of stuff.

So he has the body on the frame with all the new body mounts and the engine and trans in. Heater box and heater core installed.

The remaining chrome was supposed to be dropped off this Saturday past but the guy could not make it up from LA and said he will be up this week.

I am close to being done.

I have a question. The windshield wiper motor. It lookalike there are 2 - a single speed unit and a 2 speed unit. If I get the 2 speed and the wire harness and swith only supports the single speed. can I use the 2 speed version

Ok we are stuck on something very simple but I can not find the gasket for it. The Vent window... What is the gasket called that secures the glass to the frame. Not the gasket that allows the window to tilt open, but the gasket that secures the glass to the Frame.... I can not seem to find it anywhere.

No, thats what I thought and ordered. The gasket I need goes inside the housing that the glass fits into.

That gasket on opgi is the one this whole piece fits into. The one I need is the gasket that goes around two sides of the glass and then secures the glass into this triangle frame. This gasket will look like a v

Ok so here is my issue and i cant figure this all out. I need one of you guys to help me out with this. So the door glass was ordered a year ago. The glass came and no issue with windshild, or rear quarter or vent glass. But the left and right side glass is causing some issues. The old glass has 3 holes in the bottom. The new glass does not. So the body guy could not figure it out and I took it to a glass shop. The glass shop is telling me the glass is correct but the bottom sash is wrong. But the car had the sash that allows it to bolt through the window.

On Franks Pontiac web site I see what looks like my lower window sash and I see another that looks different.

here is what my sash looks like.

Thick and has three holes that bolts can go through the windows to fasten it. But it says they were pulled from a 65, but says it is applicable to 64 and 65

My windows look like these but those bottom sashes don't look anything like mine. It appears my windows are held in with glue in the channel into these sashes.

So What I want to know is can I get the 65 glass and will it in the 64.

I looked in the shop manual and it is of no use. Some please help me out. Or if anyone has those 64 sashes let me know. Do they work with the remainder of the mechanism.
