I just put one of these in my '74 two weeks ago. Pretty easy install, but fitting the weather strip was a real pain in the butt. Looks good though. I'll post some pictures soon.

:agree:
You will spend most of the time with the weather strip then the rest of the job. Just make sure the old sealer is cleaned out good. And usually the weatherstrip is a little long if it is make you splice in the middle at the top.
Did this to my 73. Now I know I have great sounding exhaust.

when you are ready to put the weather strip in, be sure to buy plenty of spray silicon. it helps alot- my weatherstrip is so tight its not even worth taking my window out on nice days. hopefully it gets better

yeah I know how you feel my 75 is on the lift and has been for almost 3years, I took it apart, My back is so bad I need someone here if I work on it just in case I get hurt. i live 4 miles from where they found gold in ca. and it is still in the sticks. not a lot of neighbors. I get my vette fix by driving my 89 on fridays,

Sorry, what is AIM ? think i missed that one.

Assembly Instruction Manual

AIMs show how the cars were assembled at St. Louis/Bowling Green. Has line diagrams for most things, original part numbers, torque specificaitons, notes on installations where needed, installation of options, etc, etc.

AIMs are great and worth the money.

:thumbsup:
