Finally dug these out of storage so I can clean them up and install them. Anyone have any tips or things I should watch out for when I installed them?

Yes, definetly a two person job. First lube the rubber up (inside the groove) with WD-40, dish soap, or silicone, etc... then place a heavy but thin cord/string inside the gasket groove. Now place the bottom of window gasket into the window opening and have the other person push the window down onto the edge of the top from the outside. Have the other person hold and apply light pressure as you pull the window gasket into the opening using the cord from the inside. You may have to work the gasket with your fingers or a screwdriver if it folds. take your time, this is not a fast process.

Here's some generic pics to give you an idea:

Those are nearly impossible to install. I think you should ship 'em on up to me and I'll make a whole write-up on how I installed them on mine.

Nice score though. I'm jelly! @cobrajoe gives some solid advice and if you search around the site a little more, I'm sure we've got some good info from members past and present that will help even more.

After cleaning up the sliding windows, the seals/strips that touch the sliding glass broke all up. Weathered so much they were hard and brittle... will that effect its ability to keep out water?

Well, Not Today but Saturday.....
On my 1978 Ranger XLT Bronco, I replaced the lower steering shaft with a Borgensen unit, Wild Horses Saginaw PS kit and a Redhead steering box. Plus a in line filter and fluid. 7 hours later, all works awesome.

started cleaning the headlight assemblies as the rain wouldnt let up on us. Took a wire brush attachment to the angle grinder and blasted away most of the rust, going to finish them up with a dremel and quick coat of etching primer and black enamel paint

Used it to tow some junk I was selling at the Tidewater Broncos "Swap Meet". I had a good time and met some new folks. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Sorry to hear you're still waiting on the alignment shop, but could be worse, like the 22 weeks mine spent in the shop after we got her from Texas to Pa. Curious (and this is gonna sound like a noon question) but why do you call it a "dentside" @youngDUMP ?
