I just had to replace a door on my race car due to putting a crease in it at the vintage event at the CA Speedway. My car is a 73 and the replacement door is a 70 which means the mounts for all the parts are slightly different. I fit the bare door first and got all the gaps to be fairly even then started putting the parts in. The first to go in was the main window channel which supports both pieces of glass. I had to make sure it went in correctly, meaning I put the upper attachment bolt in loose and then put in the lower adjuster and nut. Make sure that the lower adjuster gets put in from the inside of the door and that the slot for screwdriver adjustment comes through the hole towards the outside. Then screw it into the bottom of the window channel and put the nut on the outside loosely. The door has a slot so the angle of the window channel can be varied slightly and I had to make mine longer slightly (0.25 inches) so the glass would all line up. I put the winder mechanism in after the channel. Good luck.
