Looking for NOS weatherstripping for both sides of the roof of my T-Top SS. Have heard that the aftermarket s aren’t too good . Thanks.

Purchased set this spring from Mike's Monte's. Replaced aftermarkets. Nice improvement in surface and uniformity. Don't exactly match up with the aftermarket door seals, but nothing does.

i Am assuming the weatherstripping from Mike’s is aftermarket? How difficult was it to install? We’re you replacing original seals or aftermarket?

Thanks

Cory,
I installed, a few years ago, aftermarket ones and had to use glue to hold it in shape.
The seals I bought recently this spring from Mikes were the one attaching to the outside t-top rails; sealing to the top of the windows.
In original GM packaging.
As with many GM parts, there is a left and right, but very similar.
I didn't use any adhesive.
He has a variety of original / NOS parts.
You have to ask - he often assumes those calling are wanting the less expensive reproduction parts.

I did see some NOS t top seals on ebay last night.


Do it for yourself not the attention of others.

Thanks for the replies. I went on ebay and the only NOS t-top weather-stripping I see is for the seals that go on the t-top panel. I am looking for the t-top weather-stripping that goes on the body . Up the B-pillar around the t-top opening and down the A-Pillar. I'll give Mike a call and see if he has any NOS weather-stripping or if he knows who may be sitting on a pair of them. I am sure someone has a pair collecting dust somewhere.
