Does this kit replace all the rubber and felt in the SW side windows?
I see the rubber, 5 feet listed but was wondering about everything else in the window.
I did get the sample, it looks great, but I couldnt figure out what's included.
Thanks

Stoked! I installed Paul's kit on my drivers side window this past early winter/late fall. It was working pretty well but I emailed him asking if I had the older rubber. He said I did and also said he's getting me some new rubber that will be a lot easier to install for the passenger side.

Like Josh said - the quality of the packaging/directions/product is top notch.

Thanks Paul!

The items that get replaced with the kit are the felt and the rivets. The rubber seal that holds the fixed window in place as well as the rubber seal on the vertical center pillar both get re-used as they are not the source of the rattle. It would be a good idea to inspect the plastic tracks in the bottom of the window on which the window slides. These are often cracked. It would be in your best interest to replace these as well if you're going to go through the trouble of removing the window. The tracks can be purchased through Rovers North or your dealer.

The kit includes 2 x 5ft flocked rubber extrusions and 50 x rivets (enough to complete both windows), plus the GooGone and scrubbing pad, Pozidriv bit, etc. All you need are the required hand tools, etc.

If you would like to see the installation guide, you can register under 'My Account' on our website http://www.garrisonoutfitters.com There you will find both a virtual booklet that you can view online as well as a PDF which you can download. This will give you a good idea of all that is involved.

Best,
Paul

Paul,

I registered and instructions for the rear windows are not there.

Could you briefly explain how it's done or email me the instructions.



Thanks in advance,

Rob

I'm sorry they are not appearing on the website and have contacted my webmaster. Sorry about that.

Sure I'll send you a PDF of the instructions.

It's really not a difficult job. The body of the rivets are made of aluminum and are quite soft. Any sharp drill bit (5/32") goes through them in no time and the head pops right off. All the work is done from the outside of the vehicle; no need to remove any interior panels (unless you bore out the holes and need to add rivet washers on the backside, but if you keep the drill straight and use the correct bit size you won't have this problem). Then you just pop out the window and take it apart to add in the rubber channels. Putting the window back in place only requires a $10 POP rivet gun from any hardware store. To be honest, the only part of the job I hate doing is putting the rubber rivet cover seal back on... it's a PITA!

Best,
Paul

Rivets

Had recent email asking about the rivets used in our kits, so I thought I would post the information here as well to help those doing some restorations/repairs.

Land Rover uses POP® rivets manufactured by Emhart Teknologies. They are aluminum closed-end blind rivets with steel mandrels and dome heads; 5/32 x .251-.312 grip.

Land Rover Part# RU610313L
Emhart POP® Part# AD55H

I have attached a picture. On the left is the rivet from my local Land Rover dealership and on the right is the rivet included in our kits. The tips of the mandrels are the same which is Emhart's 'signature'. It's a four-sided hollow-point pyramid. Dealer charged $2.79/rivet!

Hope this helps!

Best,
Paul

Just a quick follow up on the Garrison's kit for the SW windows. For the first time since I've owned the truck, the windows are completely quiet. Not even a peep... Definitely a must have (especially since the side windows were also leaking horribly into the truck before the switch). In fact, they worked so well I'm thinking about buying a couple extra sets and taping them in various spots around the Defender to see if stops some of the other rattles in the truck! =)

I did mine yesterday, the new rubber channel is really high quality. The gaskets in the fixed portion of the window gave me a fit when I reassembled the window frame. I think it might actually be a tad bit quieter in my truck, the felt has all but just about disintegrated.

For the amount of money the kit cost it was well assembled, I didn't need the goo gone, pozidrive bit, or scotch-bright pad. It would be nice if the rubber channel was available as a single item, the kit should include the rubber trim that covers the rivets.

This a good time to replace the plastic channel that the glass slides in also, both of mine were broken.

Mine came earlier this week and since I had a few minutes this evening I thought I'd start on them. [Un]Lucky me, the first screw I went to undo snapped off at the head so I'll have to drill and tap it. The rest of the teardown was easy and so far very impressed with the product.

What plastic channel Phillip? I didn't separate the glass from the rail yet but I thought it was all aluminum? Also is the rubber trim over the rivets available? I assumed it was something like the right stuff.

Paul,

Got my kit in (great packaging, by the way) and started installing it today. I noticed that I cant slide the rear glass forward enough to access one of the channel screws because there is a small rubber bumper in the way. I didn't see it mentioned in the instructions but I assume that I just pop that bumper out with a flat screwdriver?

I snapped a head off one of the damned screws, too. What a bummer. Besides drilling and tapping it, I need to source a whole new screw. Charles, what size tap and screw did you choose to replace the sheared one?

I think I will soak the other screws in PB Blaster to hopefully prevent this from happening again.
