Hi. Looking to replace the "weather stripping"? located on the frame of the front window and protects against the front doors when closed. As you can see from the pic, they look to have the 86 years of wear and tear on them. Not sure what to call this when i search. Any thoughts appreciated on what it is, and where I may find them?

Thanks!
Ben

Thanks BigKev! I just opened the roof, and it looks like it is the same in those rails as well which need to be replaced.

The roof rail channels on my '37 Sedan Convertible are 1 ". I ordered 16 feet of roof rail weatherstrip #70-0251-65 from Steele and the base measures 7/8" not 15/16". The weatherstrip is too small would need to be cemented in place. I was able to find 1" base material from a Ford Restoration company (C&G) that will slide into the channel. I also replaced all my channels with 316 SS.

Thanks. I just order as sample of 30-0031-65 side roof rail weather striping from Steele Rubber. It shows .75" width. Did you put the screws holding the channel down also through the weather stripping to hold it in place? Or just additional adhesive?

The weatherstripping is glued into the stainless channel with 3M Super Black Weatherstrip Adhesive.

The channel is screwed to the windshield frame first as the weatherstripping hides access to the screws once glued in.

Steele has instructions on their website on the proper use of that adhesive with their products.

You'll need to remove all traces of the previous weatherstripping and adhesive from the channel first to get a good even bond with the new one.
