Default 1940 Convertible window channels?

Here's a question, I'm trying to install 01a-45983-c window channel felt kit in my car. The car doesn't appear to have originally had any fuzzies in the channel, other than on the vent window bar above the body line. It has metal tracks with rollers on the window. The window channel kit fit great but it's so tight the window barely moves. I can't even slide it up and down by hand with it disconnected from the regulator. I pulled the felt kit back out and the window works beautiful. What's the deal here? Did some of the cars not take the felt kit?

You are correct... The only vertical channel that has the felt is the forward channel - at the vent window.

The rollers of the roll up assembly ride in the metal (read: no "fuzzy") channel.

Thanks again as always Kube! Two nights of aggravation spent trying to reinvent the wheel. I owe you a beer one day!

Kube is their supposed to be grommets on the front top corners at the end of the channels holding the upper door window w/strips on the convertible frame.
