Quarter glass

Kind of random and out of place, but.....
Since my super reliable duraspark has let me down with no sparkle to get this heap in the garage for metalwork...

The car was missing glass, so I bought a complete smoke tint set. Only having one original green quarter window, I had to buy the passenger side in clear(the only way it comes with frame tilt hardware?) Oh boy! What an ordeal. Thinking the glass was glued in, I took it to the glass place we use at work. The lady called me an hour later: "we can't do it". Loooong story less long, the glass guy says "I can glue it in and blah blah" which means nothing since he quit the next day! So after 3 days at least I figured out the rubber seals that take 3 weeks to get from CJ's is all that hold the glass in, and with a can of silicone spray, I had them swapped out in less than an hour and 0$.
BTW...the aftermarket frames have the glass siliconed in, and have to be cut out with a razor!
What a pain, but now in 3 years when the car's ready they'll be ready to install.
