Since I am here (...updating all my log on IDs and passwords) I thought I would post a quick note to let you all know, after 39 years and 7 months, I have accepted a retirement package from General Motors.

Last day worked was Feb 7, last day as a GM employee was Feb 28.

I spent the bulk of that time in Full Size Truck product design and development, as well as Engineering Program Management. All told I worked on six generations of Full Size Trucks (C/K/R/V, GMT400, GMT800, GMT900, K2 and T1), one small car (GenI Volt and derivatives) and one "big" car (that I am not at liberty to talk about).

I don't imagine anything will change here, although I might find more time to post.

K

Congrats on your retirement. Now you will begin to wonder how you ever had time to go to work.

Looks like you got out of GM at just the right time! Almost 40 years is more than enough. Stay busy is the only advice I have to offer, and have fun! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Hope you didn't work at Lordstown. I understand they more or less pulled the rug out from under people there. It's a new world and I don't like it.

Just because your car/truck was "Made In America" doesn't mean it's American made... think about it. Buy American First.

Congrats on your retirement. I retired from a large insurance company 25 years ago this year after 29 years of service. Best thing I ever did. I have loved retirement and do not miss the work environment at all, but I must admit I still have dreams (nightmares) about working at my old job...

Keith,

Congrats on your retirement. I am not very far behind you myself.

Now, There is a debate going on with some other squarebody enthusiasts.

When reinstalling vent windows, that the seal lip be inside or outside door frame. Seeing some youtube videos, some state inside, some outside. Thought you were the most knowledgeable person to ask with more that 39 years at GM working with these trucks. I reinstalled mine on the inside which I thought was the correct way and really does appear to correct. What say you?

(I originally posted this under steering post and did not realize it.)

Inside.

The seal is curved to help feed it into the door; there is also a cross car screw inside the door that you are supposed to torque once the window is in place, to provide some additional clamp load on the seal.

I'm a little surprised there is even any debate about it.

Thank you, everyone btw -

Well, you know how some people are...as I mentioned, there are some videos out there that state outside. Some state inside. There is always someone questioning a lot of details of repairs. I suppose they don't pay enough attention when removing that they get confused as to the install.

Thanks.
