Ok first of all it's better to put the gasket on the glass iinstead of the window frame. Then tie a piece of strong string around the gasket by placing it into the same groove that will be where the lip of the window opening will be going make sure the ends of the string are oriented to be at the bottom when the glass is in place. Then spray some silicone onto the rubber and place it into the opening by resting it on the lip at the lowest edge and with the string ends inside the truck you pull the string slowly and hold one end steady the gasket will roll into the opening because the string will lift it up over the lip take your time and be patient it works great
: OK - I am soooo close to getting my truck on

: attempted to put in the front and rear
: windows - put the seals in and put the
: windows in and done... right? not so
: simple - I could NOT get the seals to stay
: in place - work part of the seal in place,
: move on, work another part in place, and
: (theoretically at least) keep moving on
: until the seal is up and ready for the

: got any advice - what is a good way to keep
