    1955 Wagon - Help

    So I am curious if there is a trick to this and I thought I would ask you guys.

    I am installing the side 1/2 roll down windows in the 2-door wagon. Used the same steps as on the doors. Greased the rollers, spun the regulator down with the main roller channel installed. Inserted window. Brought regulator up to slot the roller tack to window track, and ............

    realized I couldn't get to the 4 screws that secure the window track to the roller channel. Is there a trick to the window install or do I need to lay on the floor of the wagon and contort to get the screws in?

    The doors weren't an issue because there were access holes to install the screws. I have a hunch there isn't a trick its just a #$%^(*&* job.

    Any wisdom gentleman?

    And the secret is......

    Put the right window in Curve to curve and straight in back. Opposite to the door. Its a headache putting the driver window in the passenger quarter.

    Ok done for tonight.
