    Re: LeBaron Konvertible

    I guess I really do need to keep up with this. First item, there was a spot on the driver's side floor where the Reliant floor pan that had been severely beaten up by the Newport News fire department during an extrication class had a nice bulge almost under the steering column. I didn't want to try working on it with the dash installed and definitely not with the windshield installed. I pulled the dash back out and took a good size sledge hammer to the bulge.

    After that I reinstalled the dash and steering column. Found a windshield and had a local shop install it, technician was very happy that it was stripped down and I was doing the reassembly. Got out my NOS window guides (MOPAR 04136914) and replaced the destroyed set on the driver's door, passenger side just needed adjustment. With the windshield in and the side trim and weatherstrip installed, both windows come solidly against the weatherstrip.

    Fortunately, both rear quarter window drive tapes decided to give up before I installed the glass there. I now have both left side windows in.

    I had been trying to get my nice 1989 analog cluster to work, but the tachometer is very erratic, even tried a different tach module with no luck. I finally gave up and stuck one of the good digital ones I got from Arizona parts. I had run the wiring for the 2001 Sebring convertible rear view mirror so stuck it on the new windshield.
