    It may just have been a flaw in the glass and it broke due to temp changes?

    The glass fuzzy channels arent screwed in. They arent attached at all. The side verticle ones are a nice snug fit in the doors runners. And the top one is just sat in at the moment. Not stuck at all.
    So Im at a loss as to whats caused it. There may have been a stress point when the glass was cut?
    The glass is a loose fit in the fuzzy channels. Slides up and down by hand easily. No obvious twist of frame. And a small amout of twist could be compensated by the loose fit of the fiuzzy channels.
    Further investigation is required....

    The pic of the broken glass had most lines of fracture coming from a single point about 6-8" back from the front at the top.

    A bit of *one step forward and one step back* today.
    Fitted door glass in drivers door. Left it over night. Went in the garage this morning, and its shattered. Bugger!!!
    Never mind, more glass orderd.
    The door mechanisms were all miss matched. Bear claws, Model A outer handles, Ford Pop inner handle mechanisms and random inner handles.
    Nothing worked together, so I had to make up a rod and lever mechanism inside the door to make them cooperate. They now open from inside and outside.
    Also put the door trims and handles on the passenger side door.
    Really getting close to finishing now.

    So I had my daughters car fail its mot. So instead of working on mine for the last two day, I have been sorting that out.
    ((Lots of welding and rear axle out to replace bushes etc))
    But...... I have still got a lot done on mine. So here goes........

    Hung the doors and lined them up. Catches on and latching.
    Rear seat is fake. Its just a cover for the fuel tank. But I wanted it to look like a rear seat... So thats fitted.
    The front seat is back together and fitted.
    Just need door handles and door trims on to complete the interior now.
    So..... All I need to do now to drive it, is wrap the front end wiring and attach it to the chassis. Attach the trans cooler pipes to the chassis. Bleed the brakes and put fuel in.
    Set the float heights and thats about all it needs to get mobile.
    Exciting times!
    Anyway..... Have some pictures.
