I found a 50 deluxe with no interior except the seats. The quarter windows were removed with no weatherstripping. I bought a kit to install windows but have no good directions. Help!

(Some info on pages 80-81) but check the index.
Try looking through this manual.
Good luck and Welcome.
Also check out TOCMP on the web and find the 49-54 Chevy Service Manual
Lots of info on Windows etc
(Some info under "Body" page 1-16)

I hope the "regulator" mechanisms came with the car. Those are not easy to find. The little chrome "potmetal" latch is kinda fragile on them also. Both of mine on my ratrod are broken and the windows work their way open all the time. The hardest part about redoing those quarter windows that I recall encountering was bending the weather strip into the tight turns to get it in shape to fit around the window opening where it is "stapled" to the sheetmetal of the body and the garnish molding. Hard to get those curves and it still look good.
