Hi,I am long time subscriber to the Mag. and I tought it might be great to tackle a challenging task of converting a 3 Window 52 Chevy truck to a 5 Window. My friend had an extra cab that he chopped up and he gave me the two side windows inside and out. We cut them below the belt line and through the B-Pillers. I know Chevy of the 40's sells both halves, but I am a football coach and I can't afford that. My parents 50th Anniversery is coming up this summer and they drove a 5 Window truck when they were dating. I would like to have it ready for their Anniversery.How do I tackle this? Should I split the sides up and then cut or try to install the whole thing?Ads
I would say intall it whole. It would mean less welding, which means less heat, and warpage. Also less chance of getting the dimensions wrong... That's my two-cents.
