why didnt you just get a door off of another coupe?
As I said earlier I like the look of frameless windows, My 69 coupe had them, as well as my 73 Mach 1. I can understand ford switching to framed windows because they seal better but then the SN95's and newer have frameless windows! I probly could have cut down the frame like the 83 - 88 verts and t-tops but I also wanted the stalk mirrors they look better IMO than the window mounted ones.

I disagree I think its cool as ****. I love custom ****, I'm taking it the glass is all the way up. If it is get the welder out and extend the weather strip mount. I think the T-top weatherstrips will help out, the hatch weatherstrip isn't made to seal the door glass.
Thanks stang8689! yeah I have the glass up all the way now and the glass itself is curved more than the flatter framed glass. I am going to go with the t-top stripping think it will give me the best seal. Once I do get it I will see how close it is and if needed then I will weld in a strip to move it closer. As I get to those stages I'll post more picts of what I had to do.

Thanks for all the input guys! Had this project in my mind for the car I had before this one, nice to finally be able to give it a shot. One more set of pictures for this thread till I get more done too it. Was trying to make this an animated gif but some reason my computer wouldn't co-operate so here are the 4 stills.
