Hi All,
just re-assembling the doors on my 4 door hardtop and ran into some trouble. It seems the fur channels are way way too tight to allow the windows to roll up and down.

I installed a brand new set of fuzzies from Repops and the material seemed to match the remnants of the old crud that I scraped out, but the driver's front window only rolls up if I also pull on it, and the passengers front side window won't even let me install it in the door. Nothing is tight yet so I don't think the windows/channels are binding, nothing seems to be hitting anything, all door parts are original to the car, the rivets on the divider bar are flattened nicely, it really seems to be that blasted channel felt. Any ideas?

I did the same but I did not use Stsples to secure the fuzzies on, instead I used a drill (very small and sharp) to drill holes and use tiny phillips head screws to secure the fuzzies.
Also you may find that the mechanisms if not cleaned and re greased with high temp grease may have old hard grease that interferes with the up and down of the windows!
I did everything! Replaced the glass I did the roof rail seals! It still isn't like what I want but it works pretty good!
Oh! did i mention I converted all to electric windows! (PIA)!!
Just thought, have you sprayed the window fuzzies and tracks with any silicone?? That helps!!
