Title: Weatherstrip
Post by: Mike on October 21, 2008, 03:14:08 PM

I was doing a little browsing online and I haven't found many websites with weatherstripping (specifically a trunk seal) and was wondering if I'm just not looking in the right place or what.  If anybody could shed some light on this subject please let me know.

Andy has it
 
Measure the full paremeter of the trunk carefully so you have the footage.  Add a foot or 2 JIC.

I bought my rubber products from Restoration Specialties.
Depending on who you talk to,some like them,others hate them.
I,personally,had a good experience with them.Slow to ship,but very nice products,IMO.

We use 'em, like 'em, but shop around....some of their fasteners are way over priced

Fogel got a good one that I installed on his Hurst.  Drop him a line to see where he got it.
Then, let me know as well as I want one for my Newport!  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Does anybody make custom fit trunk seals?  I've seen a few on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/68-69-70-71-Plymouth-Fury-Trunk-Weatherstrip-Seal-NEW_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQitemZ110304066939 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/68-69-70-71-Plymouth-Fury-Trunk-Weatherstrip-Seal-NEW_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQitemZ110304066939)
but I'm not sure if I should even bother.  Would this suffice or should I look into something better?

Mike.  All trunk seal comes in linier lengths.  It's joined together at the bottom.
 
Are you thinking the trunk seal is leaking? Or is it torn.  If the trunk seal is not torn, it's probably the back window.  You need a glass guy to come in, take the glass out.  You MUST fix any rust that is under the window gasket.  Thoroughly and as professional as possible so it does not blossom back later.  It's a very common spot for leaks.
 
Please check that as I told you too.

As I understand it, Restoration Specialties sells most of the seals to the other suppliers, so if your buying from XYZ, it could very well be drop shipped from RS. That was my situation with some window whiskers that I bought. I originally ordered them from Bernbaum, but they were made wrong. Bernbaum, and several other suppliers that I called said they got them from RS. Bernbaum sent my defective ones to RS and he remade them correctly. It only took 2 1/2 months to get them back. Twice they told me they were already shipped when they weren't. He never returned my phone calls or emails. They're customer service skills s-ck, but  If you can be patient, they'll eventually take care of you. Thats my two cents. 67Newport2008-11-15 13:59:55

However, it will not open at this time.  There are other suppliers out there.  I installed a nice seal on Fogel's Hurst.
 
Steve, where that info on whom you used??

I ordered it on EGay, but I can't remember the vendor.  It worked like a charm, despite being installed  by me and Snotty!......maybe we talked about it on C Body Stopcock......check there

Gary is  good - he did much of the resto on Richard Carpenter's
cars... specializes in 300 interior and trim, also has other stuff.
He's a one man band since he moved to Montana, so he can be slow to
respond and gennerally doesn't answer the phone, but you'll always get
your parts.

Thanks Steve.  If this is the same stuff we put in your trunk, it's good.  I need to get some as mine is rotting away.

No Buddy, I think your out of luck for those.  However, take a pictrue of the front of your car and post it here in Parts Wanted.  You never know.  Chris had that bracket for the front lisence plate holder.  It fits well.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif)
