I've got a huge problem. I bought this 1963 alpine II that was a basket case and it came with two windshield frames . They are both identical and when either frames are put on the car the holes all line up but the two studs on either end do not protrude far enough through the dash ends to attach the nuts? When I tighten the remaining three fasteners down the frame looks good and the top attaches nicely. But when I close either door the chrome window guide hits on the end of the windshield? The only way to close the door is to remove the chrome door window guides? And , as mentioned, I can't attach the end window frame nuts? Now I've bought a parts car ,1967, and I took the window frame off and have the same result. Do I simply have three incorrect window frames? The end studs would have to be at least 1/2 inch longer , but I don't know how to fix the door issue. If the top of the dash is bent , perhaps a roll over, I could jack it back where it needs to be but that solves only one problem . Does any one have a early II frame that is out and could measure the end stud length ?
That's in advance
When I say basket case I'm not talking about rust as it is not rotted out anywhere . But it came with boxes,baskets, of stuff that was taken off and Lots of duplicate stuff
Wrong windsheld frame ???
