Are you doing the install or are they?
Do you have the new rubber seals and have you cut them yet?
I have found that I have the best luck when I have the cut seals and then make a template out of 1/4 luan. I fit all that into the window opening and tweak the template as needed.
I also recommend using O rings glue to re connect the cut rubber seals.
JMHO.

Make the template exactly what you need after they sand the cut edges and all. If you have a spare piece of windshield rubber that will help you know what space you need around the outside.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
