It looks correct.

Those suckers end up so tight in the opening until the rubber outsidemost lip starts to get a memory of leaning outward. I have even had to put low-tack tape on the paint of the opening for awhile to get them to not stick. Some people have various ideas. I hope yours open up well. Post up your results.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread. It is a wealth of information as I am considering replacing the pop out windows on my '60 bus.

The one item I have searched for and haven't been able to find is how to best remove the old pop out window hinges which are spot welded to the body. While the hinges still function, there is good amount of rust/corrosion on them which I would like to remove and start with fresh hinges. Is this something that anyone here may have experience with or has come across within the forum search? Thanks in advance!

Sand the metal until you can see the welds, then hit the welds with a Dremel, grinder, or similar tool, being careful not to hit the body metal.
