Vent window hitting roof weatherstrip

Not as easy as I imagined,I have the roof rail weather strip in place and the driver door will not shut,seems like the vent window hits the roof rail weather strip too soon and binds on it causing the door not to close properly any thoughts.

So, adjust the vent window frame in the door until it fits properly.

Try this in the search box: 67 chevelle vent window removal

It's from a recent post, and I tried to add this a link, but it's not working for me. It shows removal and adjustment of the vent window.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Ya probably should have done that before door panels and handles,one step forward two steps back.

No other way to do it. Make sure the door is adjusted to the car first and fits well with the latch, rear quarter and front fender. THEN adjust the wing window to fit the roof rail strip.

Then comes the fun of adjusting the window to fit and roll up and down smoothly then the fun of adjusting the quarter window to fit the front window and the roof rail.
