I get shell back from the body shop next week, I'll start with wiring and dash install. Those of you who have done several full restorations, when do you typically install the front and rear glass?

I put the front in after the dash.  Suggest adjusting your doors with full weight of glass and tracks before the dash.  Adjustment of the doors is a pain with the dash in.  The rear I have installed early in the reassembly.

That was my first inclination, actually put the glass in last.
