The 1984-2001 Jeep Cherokee front door checks work nicely in 1960-66 C10 doors. It has 2 detents which is a nice feature. The Jeep checks do not allow the door to open as much as the OEM door checks but it's not enough of a difference to really matter. If you have a set of Cherokee door checks with the rubber stop, then this simple modification will allow the door to open a little wider. Why not? It's super easy.
The remaining work to rebuild my PS vent window went smoothly once my parts arrived. Some 3M strip caulk was used to fill any gaps left where the glass setting tape wasn't wide enough. I'll document the steps when I rebuild my DS vent. I'm glad I bought the OEM style window channel insert. The fit is excellent. The main glass installation went smoothly too. Both of my original window regulators are in excellent shape. The doors are hung but latch adjustments need to be made.
I went to the Charlotte Auto Fair last Saturday and bought some parts. PS door skin, vent window seal kit and other stuff. Here are pics of my PS vent rebuild. So far, it's going pretty smooth but I'm awaiting the arrival of another order that has some parts I need.
A test fit before I install the glass.
