    Well gents, I just went through the rebuild on all the window mechanism and it was rather painless. My question is....Can I install the mechanism with the window not in place? I have not ordered the windows yet but want to install the mechanism/ carriage/ window-roller-upper thingies.....IF I can install the windows fairly easily at a later date. No cash in my piggy bank for the entire set yet, have to wait on that. I know someone has done it backwards like I am suggesting, just wanted to know if it is too much of a pain to put glass in last. Thanks for the help!

      This guy does it after the vent is installed.
