Found some elusive weatherstripping

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>OK, after searching for this stuff like crazy I finally found a place that carries it. The weatherstrip I'm talking about is the felt piece that the window rolls up and down in - it goes in the channel on the back of the division bar, which is the piece that seperates the roll-up window from the vent window. Got it? Anyways, when I replaced all the wheatherstripping on my doors this was the one piece that I couldn't find. Well I found it! A place in Pennsylvania sells it in bulk, 8 foot lenghths, but they're only $10 for 8 feet! That's easily enough for two trucks, I'd guess.

Just wanted to inform you guys about this, this seal was (and still is for now) the loudest leak on my truck. The passenger side one whistles like crazy above 50 mph.

Here's the info - Restoration Specialties at 814.467.9842. the part number is AS1340Hope this helps someone out.

BTW, Soffseal sells this part, but only in a kit with the door channel seal. the kit is $92. When I bought the window channel seal it was like $20 each at the dealer.

Re: Found some elusive weatherstripping

How much are they going to rape me for shipping? It's too good to be true.

The piece that is inside the door that the window goes up and down on is the only reason why my window on the driver's side rolls up and down so stiff (passenger side a kindergartner could roll up and down with their pinky finger). I was going to make one but if it's that cheap I'll get it from them.

<font color=green>Wrath, you're a pessimist, aren't you?[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] The lady on the phone was extremely nice, I asked her about shipping and she was going to look it up, but since I wasn't ordering I told her not to bother just yet. She did say that it was flexible, so it can be rolled up to be shipped. I can't imagine it would be any more than $10 for UPS, and that's not bad considering I can't find this stuff ANYWHERE else...

Here's a link to their catalog online. THe strip is on page 17 as listed in the PDF, but appears to be page 11 in the printed catalog. It's actually listed for a Ford truck, but the lady asked her husband and he said it's the same for a GM. (mine's a '78, but yours is prbably the same, might want to ask though). There is a picture though, with measurements, so you can check to make sure it's the right one before ordering.

Re: Found some elusive weatherstripping

jeah. you got me.

I'm cheap. I can get everything in/on the door for $45 from the dealer. The stupid seal that goes AROUND the door costs $50. Is that stupid or what?

Anyway, that sound slike a deal to me.

Thanks for sharing with us.

That place is like 45 minutes from my house. I never heard of them before though. Takes someone from CA to show me a resto place at home. Guess its a small world.
