Glass Install

Hello I am going to have body shop install my side and quarter glass in my 69 Camaro coupe. Does anyone have an idea of how long that normally will take? I am paying by the hour and do not want to be taken advantage of. I understand that there could be issues but just rough estimate of time it would take would be great.

1969 RS Camaro in need of restoration but pretty original. It has red deluxe comfort weave interior.

Re: Glass Install

It can an hour per window or hours. Depends on the guys experience doing the work.

Are these the original regulators and glass going back or new?

Bottom line is you writing the shop a blank check to do the work.

I would a least get a not to exceed estimate.

Re: Glass Install

A month ago I installed all 4 glasses in a 69. It took me 2 days and was the first time and not that difficult. Replace the rollers and serviced the window hardware.Why don't you DYI. YouTube has a very detailed instruction. It took longer to adjust the glass to fit tight than to install. Part of the fun is doing the work yourself and not to spend a fortune having someone else do it. The bill to the client was $550, including the front and rear glass install. . . .those are easy.
