Those look good Buster. Thumbs Up I see you found out the same thing I did about making the bushings to long. LOL  I use Loctite silicone grease on everything to make it slide even nicer. And for those of you who are going to do this, if the guide tube isn't nice and smooth, the bushings won't slide right so use some fine emery cloth on the tube to smooth it out while you have it apart.

Great job Buster. To get good contact on the tube we went shorter on the length and a little tighter on the clearance. That reduced any bind issue. Your side guides look great. I opted to use a cotter pin to make changing them a little easier but I love your design. Be sure you have good clearance at the top of the rod. The upper mounting can be a little close when you roll the window all the way up. I did not rivet the bushings in but used stainless steel screws with ny-lock nuts. I did clean up the guide rod and touched it up on the buffer before putting it back in.

Congrats my friend. I think you have a hot product to sell. Put me on your customer list as soon as you are ready.

Hey Ken, would not have been possible without everyone help and advice, So here what we can do I can reduce the height of the bushing to save on price. Let me know what everyone thinks. I am not really planning on becoming a "dealer" of any type but what I can do is produce these for those who want them in sets or individual components.
price will be based on material and shipping cost to get it and to send it to whoever wants them. I have no intentions of getting rich on the AMC community. To produce as shown I would need 1 1/4" and 3/8" stock. The supplier you forwarded me Ken seams to be the best pricing I have found. I will leave this post ride for a week or so then have a better idea how many to make then price accordingly. If someone needs them asap. please let me know I don't want to hold up anyone's project. All interested please Post here or PM. me with exactly your needs and quantities.

I am definitely in for 2 doors worth ( wasn't sure if we were talking a set being a car worth or just one door) in any case I would like enough to do 1 car.
Thanks,Al
