Trial fitting new panels on my 65, I found the metal edge at the top of the door that the top rail rests on had to be pulled out a little to get some more distance between the panel and the vent window to allow the panel to drop without having to push it in hard towards the vent window.
No way it would have gone on like that with the weatherstrip attached.
Door metal needing pulling out a bit might be the case with your car.
My weatherstrips were screwed on with short black Phillips screws that barely poke through the top rail.
No adhesive or anything else to deal with.
Some are stapled on though and have to be left alone.
In that case if it seems you have to push the panel in towards the glass excessively to get the panel to drop, try bending the door metal out a bit in those areas so the weatherstripping is not overly tight against the glass.
