   Can anyone recomend a web site that might show me the steps I need to take to replace the vent window seals on a 65 GTO hardtop? I have the seals but need help in how to get out the old ones and install the new ones.

If you haven't joined Performance Years Forum, do it now! lol. Okay, here's the procedure direct from the Body By Fisher Manual for your car. ************************************ 1. Remove front door ventilator assembly. (my comment: this requires removing the door panel and loosening the screws from below the vent frame. Don't loosen the ventilator pivot nut unless the vent window doesn't turn easily.) 2. Remove ventilator glass and sash channel from ventilator frame by opening glass approximately 60 degrees and pushing glass downward slightly to disengage glass unit from ventilator frame at upper pivot point; then, upward to disengage lower T-shaft from frame. 3. Remove ventilator division channel upper rubber bumper attaching screw. 4. Remove two attaching screws securing ventilator casting to frame and separate ventilator casting from frame so that the ventilator weatherstrip can be removed. 5. To install, reverse removal procedure. Prior to installations, apply a ribbon of medium bodied sealer between ventilator weatherstrip and casting. ************************************************ I have done this a few times. It's not that hard to do. If the old weatherstrip is hardened, you might want to use a carpet blade or similar to slice it lengthwise as you pull it out with needlenose pliers.
