I just installed my ttop weather stripping kit after needing to completely weld in new A pillars and ttop metal. For some reason I've got this weather stripping lip now above the windshield it looks like my car has eyebrows... What am i missing or what did i do wrong? Please help...[Linked Image][Linked Image][Linked Image][Linked Image]

Man... It's hard to tell by just looking at the pictures. I've installed probably 50 or so over the years and never have seen one fit like that.
I wonder if its the wrong one for your car. Mis labled or mis packaged...The way it fits at the corner of the glass is just not right.

Is it possible the weather strip is molded wrong? Where did you get it from (what vendor)? It just looks way too wide.
