To continue my education, why was a clip pin used to secure the rings rather than something more permanent? Were the rings regularly removed? Why would I at times need to remove the rings? _________________ Don Alvarez

Could be several reasons, like they get bent or they need to be removed so something else could be attached. Even if one were to not use a large clevis pin with a quick release pin one would use common industry sense and install a bolt so the head could be slid out after the nut is undone without creating a need for major surgery. _________________ Wes K

Reinstalling the glass was a PITA. Some shops will only use their own new glass. One guy said he could probably do it but was pessimistic about the results. Finally called Jerry, my mechanic friend. Took a few false starts and about two hours. I brought the paracord and helped keep stuff from slipping back out. Turned out fine. Did the bottom seal today at the barn and zipped it up.

Maybe it's my imagination or just the angle of the photo, but it looks to me like your driver-side lower door curtain retainer bracket is either upside down or maybe reversed with the passenger-side bracket?
Mine don't sit that high on the body. Pretty sure there's illustrations in the manuals. _________________ Ron D.
