Peter Berard's advice is good.   Two other things might be of help.  The slot in the rubber where the strong string is placed can be lubricated with water less hand soap--the non abrasive kind.  Provides super slick flexing of the rubber.

Having installed dozens of window glass in various vehicles I learned that if the actual glass you are working with seems too large and all efforts fail to install it, it is (believe it or not) possible to grind the laminated (not tempered) glass down so it will fit.  Go to a good glass company and they will have abrasive discs to be used by an orbital grinder that is used to carefully cut down on the edge of the glass.  They will tell you to do the job carefully to not generate any heat.  When I badly needed that information the glass company actually gave me free of charge three adhesive backed discs.  I went home, and from time to time--so I didn't get carried away doing to much at one time--ground on the side of the glass that was a little too wide.   Don't know how much I took off but after a while the glass went in beautifully with help of a couple of people on the outside putting just the right amount of pressure while I pulled the string and used the plastic glass tool in a couple of tough places.

Tony,
I use a method my dad taught me in the 40s, when flat windshields were the norm.
First, get son tough spall string, I got the nylon kind typically used to snap a chock line.
put the rubber over the windshield glass and place the string in the dish washing soap lubricated outside grove. Slide the rubber onto the bottom body flange and force it tight to the outside flange. with someone holding the glass tightly outward to the outside flange. Pull the string from inside the car gently while shoehorning a bit with a bent screwdriver. Work slowly, and you might have to try this several times till ya get the hang of it.
Now, I found the present day rubbers to be quite fat so a lot of coursing will be needed.
Of course the size of the glass is critical, but I had mine cut using the old glass for a pattern, so I have to blame the rubbers. I'd have made the glass a eighth inch smaller in width and height if I'd known this, but I still got em in.
Hope this helps...............p

Is the rubber new, or has it been around for a while ?  I tried to put my windshield in with a rubber from 10 years ago. I quickly realized that the glass was NOT going in. I purchased a "fresh" one from Dave Edwards Crosley parts, and I was able to easily install the glass on my own, mostly with soapy water and just my hands. Only needed a blunt bent tool at the lower corners. Here is s photo of my finished project for inspiration.

I really need to read what I reference. Jeff was the poster but not the original author, Steve Eggert Sr, was, sorry Steve. But since the VP of the club posted it I will accept that as approved for reprinting.

You'll need a "glass paddle". Any glass company will have one. You lip in the two halves individually and then lip in the division rubber last. It would be nice to have a glass suction cup but likely you don't.Take some bar soap in a can or bowl, add a touch of water and stir it up with a paint brush till it foams, brush the foam on the inside of the rubber channel.

I cannot answer that Mike. It was painted when I got it.From what I could see the rockers are solid, the front fenders viewed  from inside showed no repairs.  Those are always the bad parts. The floor tubs are original and solid but the floor areas around them have been made new with sheet metal. All in all I believe it to be a solid car. Paint is just old and cracking in places.

What is the body work like underneath that beautiful red paint?  Can you tell how much work (if any) was done?

Selling my 48 wagon $6500

Tim Hamblen
 

I have decided to sell my 1948 CC Wagon. I don't need two station wagons and I just finished my 49 and am running out of room. I know for a fact I put no miles on it last year and only 20 miles the year before. That's the problem of having 6 of them, none get driven enough.The car has new interior, new tires, new clutch disc, rebuilt pressure plate, rebuilt carb,new exhaust,new battery etc etc etc. The paint job is old and came with the car when I got it, but is presentable for a driver.$6500 is the price. I am in Southern Indiana my email is flinttim at yahoo .com  There are pics of it on page 6 of the CC Photos here on this site plus these pics
