    1934 ford Rear window

     



    I was wondering how you guys with 33 and 34 Fords. Mounted your rear window. Mine just has a flat flange for a mounting surface. But I can't get my head around how to attach the glass to it. Also have rear garnish molding. But it's a cast aluminum one. I cant see what to screw that to also.

    I won't be much help. I used the roll up function.

    But you should be able to find the rubber to mount the glass into and I believe the moulding should press into that and it locks it all together. But like I said, I didn't use that "style" so I'm not certain that's how it all fits together.

    Do you have a auto glass shop in town? Maybe ask them?

    Wow

     



    I can't believe I stumped so many on this question. I thought I would get all kinds of answers on this one.

    My coupe body is from N&N, flat flange with a finished edge on the outside of the back glass opening. I had a "glass guy" come out and install the windshield and back glass. He used the heavy, thick black mastic to glue them in from the inside (back), and smoothed the bead between glass & body like working caulk. The "bead" on the back glass is maybe 1/8" thick, smooth black line. Front glass glued to the outside and the mastic is thicker, almost 1/4". I have a SS trip piece on the front that's attacked with 3M trim tape.

    Glass body install is ideal for the glue in method, and it can be done in an original that way, though some don't care for the comparative "permanence" of it.

    So here is a very close approximation of what Ford used: https://www.bobdrake.com/FordItem.as...0-52163715e995

    As for the garnish attachment, originally the car would have had a wood frame (part of the inner structure) around it. Screws through the molding into the wood. Here's a pic of when I started replacing the wood in my '32 (similar to the '33/4) to give you an idea of what is would look like.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    Thanks Bob that makes sense now. Cut some wood for the glass frame just allowing enough to make the Bob Drake rubber fit the glass and window opening. And then cut another wood frame to mount the window garnish to. Thanks Guys for your feed back.
