Just wondering whether any one has any tips in getting a good glass seal on the rubber. I find there is alot of air getting in when on the highway. Seems the driver side glass needs to be angled in more and more horizontal. I believe you back off the window stabilizers to get better seal for rubber but how to get glass vertical. At the moment tilts forward by a few mm? The only problem with backing off the window stabilizers is loose window when its down.
Cheers

You have to adjust the tracks for pitch/angle of the glass and adjust your window stops which adjusts the verticle travel of how far the glass rolls up and sits against the top roof channel seal

Thanks for that, will try it tonight. I replaced the door hinge bushes so the door is no longer sagging so that too is why the angle has changed I believe. Thanks for your help.

Ok final got a chance to pull my door panel off and refresh my memory on the Torino window slide.There is a round rod about 1/2 inch diameter and the window glass has an adjustable brackeyt that is slotted and you adjust the window angle by moving the bracket in or out then there is a stop that adjusts the veticle travel to make it seal tight against the top seal but not to tight so that the door won't shut good
