On the long weather strip retainers for the t tops what have you used between the body and the metal strip? There looks to be some foam on the old pieces. Have you used two sided tape or would a strip of butyl work?

I'm wondering this also. Did you ever find the answer. I saw on a buick regal page that claimed the a and b pillar trim was butyl tape and under the top t-top trim was regular foam tape. I have looked for a good thread on t top weather stripping but I can't find it.

Here is an old post. seems like Spider_carb had a bunch of good pics that I can't access any more.. You may want to PM him and see if he can send the same pics to you email or, better yet, post them here.

Here is a post from when I was putting my t-tops seals in.

My post includes a reference to a good one by zombiedeth that still has some good pictures in it.

Hope this helps.
