Both front and rear glass are mounted in the car and everything worked out just great.
I used primer that I borrowed från the "glass shop" in town.Me and my son did the job.

Here are a few pictures of the glass install.  I decided to use the pinch weld primer.  I dry fit the glass with the provided rubber spacers, about 5/16. The rear glass needed a little more TLC for a good fit.  Both are original glass so I used the 5/16 butyl tape and it came out pretty good. I used tape to align the glass as well as suction cups so that both of us could guide it into place.  I also laid the glass on the tape before removing the backing.  You have to be careful on the corners because the backing paper needs to be torn to lay correctly.

I very much agree to tape and cover all areas.  I use 5/16 butyl on my Cuda.  I also used a Butyl rubber cement primer as a precaution for a solid seal.  I have a pictoral sequence on how I did this to attain alignment in my thread 1973 redo round 2.  I'll try to attach pictures for you if you still need them.  I also agree that it is a two person job and use handled suction cups to locate the glass.  Another step I used was to put the butyl ribbon on the channel surface but leave the backing tape on it.  It is a little tricky on the corners but this step allows you to place the glass on it, keep the glass orientated to the tape markers and then remove the backing paper, a two person job.
I can't supply a video, but can tell you how I did it. I simply cut the lock ring with a cut off wheel, almost all the way through. Then put a chisel in the groove and smacked it with a hammer. The lock ring split and it all falls off the shaft. Installed the green bearing with a press. Not very difficult. Just be careful with the cut off wheel...

I had the same unit and it worked wonderfully.  I strongly suggest you use the gas feature.  I used CO2 instead of Argon mix.  It was a less expensive option. I'll be buying another soon.

Can anyone refer a good video on how to remove the old rear bearings and how to install new green bearings on a 8.75 rear end?

Hey going to start to take apart my Challenger and work on replacing the trunk pan and other small sections as i find them. After reading about seems like  MIG welder is the go to way for beginners like myself. I saw this welder on sale here locally for 300 bucks....would this be more than enough for a body panels? Keeping in mind this will be my first go at it when it comes to welding.
