    I’m glad to be here! And I’m sure I’ll be trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible from some more experienced Mopar fanatics. I’m new to the Mopar world.

    Send knowledge my way any and all assembly post paint information.

    Grady, I need some diagrams or something to put the front grille and facia in place properly along with the hood latching system and door glass and quarter glass installations.

    I know I’m throwing a lot at you brother haha

    Part of us helping is teaching others how to help themselves. Factory service manuals and/or parts manuals are invaluable tools when taking on a project like yours. I don't know how far apart your car is. Are the window regulator assemblies together and in the car or are they on the bench? Do you know if you have all the hardware and other ancillary parts (bumpers, felts, guides, etc...?) There is a lot to installing the side glass in an E body - too much to type! I attached some info from the factory parts manual for the quarter glass - hope it can help in some way. The factory service manual has step-by-step instructions on how to install and adjust the side glass. They are available in CD format for around $20.00 - an inexpensive and worthwhile investment.

    Thank you very much! I appreciate the time you took out to talk to me and send me that information. I’m all about self educating myself and figuring this thing out on my own. I will certainly be looking into getting a factory service manual !

    Thank you! I’m taking my time with it with no rush to complete. I’m making sure I take all the right steps and no shortcuts. However I am building this car to be a driver car not a show car. I want to be able to enjoy it all the time whenever.

    Adam, welcome to the site from mid Michigan. Looks like you do have the the drive train installed. The links that the guys have provided should help you out with your interior, glass, front grill. Do you have the parts and pieces on hand?

    Although I know the side markers are factory we decided to have them deleted and patched for a more sleek look rear side markers are noticeably gone from this car as well !

    I do have most of the parts and pieces on hand. One thing I don’t have and it seems to be hard to come across is the front trim piece that bolts to the nose of the hood. And I am missing some interiors pieces.

    Adam, I checked the two links above; they are zip files and download when you click on them.
    An icon should appear at the bottom left of your screen. You then click on the icon to open the documents which you can then save on your pc.

    Adam; here is the direct link to the MyMopar site where both of these manuals are found. When you go to the site, click on the MyMopar Tools/Reference; they will be there.
