Yeah I think it was (hoping it was goo and not the seal) so I cut some of it away but the window still won't budge. I shouldn't need to push hard right?

You need to push slowly but really hard.

Okay I'll try that. I'll cut the goo out from the bottom too because that is probably not helping. But I only need to pull back the seal at the top of the windshield correct?

You need to flip back more of the seal until it will move.

Masking off the dash with 5 mil polyethylene sheeting.
Plastic is tucked in behind the rubber strip that acts as a dam for the windshield sealant,
and in front of the dash then trimmed back with a razor blade.
Regular masking tape is run on the plastic to catch the fold,and give the orange painters tape something to stick to.
Special thanks to BoostIT for the information about the Evapo-rust solution.
It is not an acid but appears to be a fairly benign sulphur compound.
POR Metal Ready [Phosphoric acid with Zinc] is shown in the background,along with Isopropyl Alcohol for cleaning and de-greasing.

Drivers side rear door rust spot needs a little stripping with a small coarse wire wheel.
Then the channel shined up with the large fine wheel to keep the metal as smooth as possible.

Notice where door has been hacked for speakers.

Here is the welded area from the passenger side quarter panel replacement.
The bondo was an eighth of an inch thick and blistering from the rusty welds.
Again,the small [to keep cutting speed down] coarse brush digs out the bondo and rust then the fine wheel smoothes the metal.
All old bondo is removed.
It looks like the crappy cheap stuff,and it has to be redone anyway.
Smaller coarse brush is shown cleaning after the evapo-rust has dissolved the rust.

Smoothing across the grinding grain of the previous repair.

Notice the tan colored epoxy primer sealer indicative of the previous repair in the feathered areas.

Found significant rust on the bottom of the rear passenger side door that had already been replaced.

Hunting the Oakland PnP for a late 940 glass headlight - fog - corner light for my body man I came across a rust free 79 244.
I bought the door I needed from it for $50.
It was well worth it to start with a clean slate.

Yep the car had been repainted and had lived in a good environment.
Kind of a non metallic root beer.

Pulling the door seal gently to stretch it a bit,and twisting it removes it intact quickly.

Alcohol, wax & grease remover and a cut down chip brush gets it clean.

Dave Barton sells those triangle stickers, and lots of other remake 240 factory ones.

New ones would really give it that extra touch of class when you are done.

Thanks,I agree.
I have some in my sticker stash.
Always good to put it back together so they see it's nice,
but they can't quite figure it out.

Reference picture of the factory duct tape that keeps the trim from chafing the paint.

The DL early manual window door has a round 7/8 inch hole with no wiring for the windows or power door locks.
The GL doors have a slotted hole to accept the rubber accordion dust boot.
Hogging it out with an old broken drill bit.

Smoothing,shaping,and deburring the hole inside and out with a 5/8 carborundum stone.

Edges are painted with a paint touch up bottle and allowed to dry before the shavings are hosed out of the inside of the door.

Empty door shell is balanced on shoulder and bolted back on car.
The old bolt marks on the hinge are used to rough the alignment in.
Power locking,and power window units are then installed.
