67 Mustang door assembly directions

I took the driver door for my 67 convertible all apart and took lots of pictures, so I would know how to put it together. the memory card was full, and there were no pictures. After insulating the inside and painting, I will install new fuzzies and then what? Should the vent window be first, or the latch?
all help will be appreciated.

How has nobody replied to this? I tried to on my phone but the forum wasn't responding so I just gave up.

DO NOT install your fuzzies first, otherwise you won't be able to get the window in (and once the fuzzies come back out, they're destroyed). The fuzzies should be the absolute last thing you assemble on your door (and one of the last things you assemble on your restoration, when it's pretty clear that your window will never have to come out again).

Put your door guts in first...handle latch and door regulator. Then install your vent window. Then you can install the door window. To install your fuzzies, you'll have to remove a rubber bumper from the bottom of the door so the window is able to roll all the way down into the door, and then you can install your beltline weatherstripping. Just a word of advice though, that rubber bumper at the bottom is an absolute bear to get back in...in fact I never was able to get mine back in.

You'll have upper and lower window stops to install as well, and honestly I don't remember what order I installed mine, but it should become obvious by looking at how everything fits together.

If it's old and hardened, by a new one. Not expensive. I put mine back on, might have actually used the original, can't remember. But the trick is to spray it with WD40, press on it, wiggle it a bit and it will pop right into its slot in the bottom of the door. Not much effort required. But without the lubricant, much harder to do.

Same car is now restored to "as new" but 3 speed tranny swapped out for 4 speed back in the mid '80's, with tach dash, original Equalock rear, Koni's, Opentracker UCA, LCA, roller perches and idler arm, roller bearing pedal cluster, Cibie headlights, 4100 carb (old 4300 put in storage probably forever)

Here are a copy of the images and notes I took when I disassembled my 1968 doors which I believe should be pretty much the same. Also, I reassembled one on a bench and used it as a model for the other side so I would know how it goes together. If you need higher resolution pics, send me your email and I can send them to you.

My Notes:

• Drivers door disassembly while on car. Remove rubber piece at base of window in jam area.
• Remove passenger inner door / window plate.
• *to remove glass: Remove 3 screws that attach the horizontal tract to window frame. Remove the lock tower water seal. Then remove the ” bolt that attaches the rear window stop. You will need to loosen or remove the vent window bolts and lower adjusting bolts to tilt it forward so the window can be pulled out,

Reassemble in reverse order.

Hope this helps and again, put one together on the bench to see how everything fits together. I also have some more pics if needed.

I have the manual, it is starting to fall apart, but I use it. I have started taking the other door apart, very carefully, using all the info I have. Don't have the glass out yet.

If you have a Ford manual, it shows all the disassembly and reassembly of the door.

Are the 65 doors the same?

I have 2 new door shells and have to transfer everything over from 2 beat-up doors. Was wondering what order to do things in myself, so this post is a great help.

Not much different. If you can you one, you can do the other.
