Hard top seals.

Anyone know where I can get a kit or set of new replacement seals for around my top, front and rear? This would include the back door glass.
I don't know what kind of hard top it is, but the rear glass is mounted on a bracket, mounted to the door. It swings out with the door.
The side glass on the rear portion of the top is curved over the top of [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]it. Anyone know if this is the "Targa" top I keep hearing about?
Any info on where I can get new seals without buying a new top, would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks.

Re: Hard top seals.

If you have the same one I did(and it sounds like you do) it's a Steelhorse targa top, unknown to me when I owned it. Mine leaked like a sive and after I broke a side window(another story) I traded it for a soft top. The guy I traded it to found out it was a Steelhorse top and contacted the manufacture about new seals....I don'tknow if he got them, but he said he would never do business with those a-holes again. You might have better luck [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Hard top seals.

I heard JC Whitney might have something that would work. They have a ton of different gaskets and seals in the catalog. Might be worth looking at.

Re: Hard top seals.

Does the top look like this one attached, if so it is a stock one... if suzuki doesn't have them try Hawk Suzuki, or JC whitney like I mentioned before...

I found this pic online... it isn't my rig... It is sharp looking though.

Re: Hard top seals.

Mine didn't cover the targa bar like that.

Re: Hard top seals.

Yeah, I think that is the one he's talking about, it's the most common one out there.

No, my top doesn't cover the targa [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img] like that either. The windows look a lot like those windows do though.

Re: Hard top seals.

Re: Hard top seals.

I think steelhorse made both 1 and 2 piece tops with the wrap over side windows. I have certainly seen
both styles with those over the top windows.

Have you gone to a good windshield place or hardware store? A good windshield shop should have access to
different ruber molding shapes. possibly JC Whitney... you may have to customize raw stock a bit, but the
seams could be filled with RTV, and 3M makes the yellow rubber to metal glue, or if you can't find that just
use RTV and hold it in place with tape until it sets.

I remember the yellow stuff being #8001 or something. Most auto stores carry it. I couldn't find it on 3M's
site. here is what I did find.
