What I did by preloading was make sure the slider bolts were firmly at
the extreme up/down in the window slots - to use that RCH (???) of
motion to the max and keep it there while tightening the nuts.

Nah, the coupe window is at least 5 degrees out of the vertical.  That's
why it is tough to align nicely with older motor and track parts, it has
to stay pressed a little into the track at the top rear.  I think.
