Started work on the doors. I started with the passenger as it has less rust.

I took some one inch and half inch square tubing to replace the window channel.

mocking things up.





I cut the one inch tubing to be the same size as the inner window channel and primed it as there will not be much room to paint it when its in.






I then took the half inch tubing and started work in the outer seal channel.




I then took the outer one inch tubing that I cut off to make the inner channel and finished the outer seal.





I then welded everything up and smoothed out the welds and primed it. It will still need filler to clean ever thing up.

Nice jeep. I came across your thread researching using the auto cps with a manual trans. I assumed I could just use my auto cps and use washers to space it up. Do you happen to know the distance you came up with for your tolerance to the tone ring or did you just get it close? Thanks

Thanks, I just got it close, I read a few people have reused it and have said to get it as close as you can. That said I can fit a washer in between mine and it work fine.

Thanks good to know. I used a piece of cereal box cardboard as a spacer, plan to fire it up in two weeks so I'm glad yours worked.
