I used one of the tools SOME - it worked OK on some sections of the rear 
window seal but not so good in corners... The best tool I had was some 
pop-sicle sticks. The wood is rounded on the ends and soft enough to break 
before damaging the seal. They worked well both inside and outside for 
seating the glass in the seal. 

There's another trick - on the windshield the glass goes in the seal then the 
glass/seal assembly goes into the cab. The back is opposite. The seal goes in 
the cab, then the glass goes in the seal, then the retaining strip. Use LOTS 
of lubricant. I used one of the "personal lubricants" (K-Y) - doesn't dry too 
fast and washes off easily. Definately a two person job but not too tough. 

Good luck,

<< Truckers,
 Do I have to buy the window seal tool to install my back window? This is
 the seal with the little additional 
 strip that goess into a groove in the seal. I've taken them out before but
 never put a new one back in.
 How do you guys do it?

 Also, anybody got a rear bumper and brackets for sale that will fit my
 truck. I would like a painted or
 SS bumper as they they did't use chrome in 1953. (Korean War?)
