I am being told that both door class and rear quarter glass needs to be changed when doing a coupe. Does anybody have any experience with the 70 bolt-in glass in a coupe? I know you only need the door glass in the fastback models, but do you really need to swap both in a coupe?

I'm not sure I get the question, but will give it a shot. In a '69 coupe all 4 side windows are glued in. The glue deteriorates over time and the window loosens/falls out of it's track. The first thing I had to do with my '69 coupe after buying it is glue all 4 windows back in.

Did that help or hurt matters *LOL*?

It's been 10+ years since I did this swap, but IIRC, the 70 front glass is slightly longer, therefore you need a shorter rear window.
Also, the weatherstrip between the 2 windows attaches to the rear window on a 70 vs front window on a 69 (or vice-versa).

At any rate, you do have to change all four!

I want to convert from the glue-in 69 glass to the 70 bolt-in stuff. I was hoping to just convert the door glass, but it looks like I'll be needing to change all four. Thanks for responding.
