wind wing noise

When fixing the de-laminated glass in the Clipper's wing wings, I also had the shop replace the rubber seals. The old windows were pretty noisy, but I think the new ones may be even worse. The seals came from Steele.
Has anybody else had a similar experience?
Thanks, Mark

I have noticed that the 41-50 vent window design has a tendency to be noisy if there is the slightest gap anywhere. Other years are not so fussy. Probably has something to so with the shape of the windshield posts and how the air rolls around that corner. Noise usually seems to come from the front corner of the window. You might be able to build up low areas of the seal by spreading on thin layers of black silicone gasket maker, or by shimming between the seal and body.

Thanks Ross, I will give that a try. In fairness, the shop warned me that the new seals probably would not fit as well as the originals.
