Default Rear window wood in my 28 Tudor

Can anyone provide a bit of advice about fitting the rear window and wood please. In particular, the four small corner blocks that are nailed into the main wood frame. How do I correctly locate them? They seem to act as support for the glass? Is it safe to fit the glass after painting the body? Thanks.

These are the only 2 pictures I have of the rear window in my unrestored 2-23-29 Tudor. If they don't help, I can't get to the car for several weeks yet.

The corner blocks give support to the window seal. I made new blocks for mine and epoxied them in place rather than using nails. The originals that I removed had split from the nails and were loose. I believe it is better to install the glass after painting. Gar Williams

Just got a new Snyder's catalog today and they are selling the corner blocks made out of Delron (sic) also known as Delrin; $10.75 ea. They say originals were made of Bakelite so I am not sure how they were fastened.

I would pre-fit the glass (with seal) to make sure it fits with the new corner blocks. If your happy, then you will now that you won't have any issues installing AFTER the paint job.

I have a 1930 Tudor and I have never seen any corner blocks in the original body before I started my restoration. Did the 30-31 Tudors have the same blocks as the 28-29? Thanks for your answer. Grant
