Well made a little progress tonight. Took the old back glass and a new / 10 year old in the bag rubber surround and got it to go in. I did not use the weatherstripping and still have not figured out how the clips go in but it's progress. Hopefully I will get some time to install the new glass tomorrow night and then move to the windshield this weekend!
Thanks for all the advice...

Curved rear glass, weather strip adhesive in the inside corner around the channel, install the lower rear corner first then up & in. A helper to hold it in place until you get a few retaining clips screwed in.

Here is my Glass install story. I bought all the side glass in frames. So just had to install on the tracks. Was it easy as pie no. But like Mike has said a lot of articles on the install plus all the help on the blog.

My next horror was the front and back glass. I read and reviewed a mountain of info. Come to the rescue ACARDON AKA Don brought a couple of friends over to help. We got the front in. The amazing thing was it is a lot easier than looks. After the experience of watching Don and crew plus Me install the front glass I did the rear with help of a friend. got it in. Just read , search for the info on this blog. Also google if you PM me I will try and send the info I have saved.

Tried to fix the pictures. Flipped them over in iPhoto and it still sent them upside down. Are the files too big? Confused!
