    The weather strips on my convertible were replaced by the previous owner. They are kind of flimsy and don't sit tight over the door and quarter panels. Anyone had luck finding a manufacture that has factory correct replacements ? Quality more important than cost. Thanks

    Tried Repop brand . Look very nice but not wide enough to seal up against the glass. Still looking for something else .

    Just checked the box. Looks like they plastered the shipping label over the part #. They are convertible weather strips. Match the profile of the old ones but the outer rubber strips are narrower. Don't form a tight seal against the glass. Water would get in the door. They had the belt " special " mouldings ones listed also but did not have the belt reveal molding on my car. Purchased off Ebay and won't provide a link when I click on it. Guess the post is too old. There is another " Made in USA set that was on there from another maker. Surprised no other members have run into an issue finding correct ones for their ragtop cars.
