Wasp Window Mechanism Info needed

I am restoring my Grandfather's Wasp. None of the door windows mechanisms work, the panels carrying the winder mechanism and the mechanisms are present and the arms terminate in a brass wheel with a spring loaded pin in the middle. I suspect there must have been some form of metal channel on the bottom of the door glass, if there was it is now a pile of rust in the bottom of the doors. Can anyone help with a picture of the connection between the lift arm and the glass. Thanks, Paul

Hi Paul.
My Series III windows have a channel at the bottom of them and there is a brass unit that runs in them and is attached to the wider mechanism. A series car is a bit of a way away from a Wasp but I would be happy to send a photo of them if you think it would help your restoration.

Hi Chris, Having looked at pictures of the seriesIII, I think it is quite possible that the mechanism is the same and a picture could be really helpful. If you can access the email address I used to sign in as a guest, could you send the image there, if you can't, you could send it to kit@roundwoodenwindows.co.uk which is my friends work email, that is already published on the net. Many thanks, Paul.

Hi Paul.
At the moment it is not possible to pass photos across using the forum which is a shame but I know Bob is looking into this. I am not sure how to access the e-mail address you used as a guest but I can certainly send the photos to the address starting kit@. I hope you aren't in too much of a hurry as it does mean taking the door cards off (obviously!) but I should have a bit of time this weekend to get the photos you want. They will only be photos of the front door mechanism as my car is a 2 door with a fairly odd rear window set-up but I think it should give you the general idea of what was originally there. I don't want to take the mechanism out unless its absolutely necessary but it can be done if needed.

Hi Paul.
I've just sent an e-mail to your friend's works address with 5 pictures of my window winder attached. I think if you look at them for a while you'll realise that the mechanism (which you have) is the tricky part whereas the window lifter is fairly straight forward and its all hidden from view which makes life a little easier.
Best of luck.
Chris
