I've always been a hotrod guy and always liked the looks of the back of the late 30's to 40 Ford coupes and sedans. I borrowed glass patterns from the local early Ford guy and had the glass shop cut them for me. I also got the rubber from them. Then I measured the thickness of the rubber, traced the window to the panel, added the thickness of the rubber (cross section) then cut out the holes conservatively. Wasn't gonna rush here. Then kept trying to install, trim, and so on until they fit the way I wanted them to. I think those back windows make the whole truck. It looks pretty bad***** from the rear. Then I took the interior back wall from the sleeper that was removed and made the interior for the inside and around the windows. That way it matched perfectly. You will have to look for patterns and have the local glass shop make them up, or I think if you look around people sell replacement glass ready to go. You cant use the Ford rubber as you would have to use the Ford interior garnish molding. I just used the rubber for universal install like for a loader or bus or somthing. You have to tell them the thickness of the metal and thickness of glass. Mine was the kind with the rubber rope lock put in with the tool. Good luck! You will get tons of complements with those things!
