Hello Folks, a couple more questions on Tudor windows please.
1. I have quite a gap between the glass and and the outer door skin, should there be something like a rubber weather shield gasket fitted along here where the arrow points?
2. I have this seal that fits in the top rail, can anyone please tell me how this is attached?
This is the top rail it fits to.
Many thanks in advance (once again) for any advice you may be able to give me.
My TuDor doesn't have anything in this gap either.
Seems like there was a post sometimes back that the late T closed cars window seals were similar to the Model A's in the way they were installed.
I know that some of the window trim and seals that's available from the parts suppliers don't always fit to well.
I found that out when I restored my 24 T Coupe.
I never could get the back quarter window rubber seals to fit correctly. I left it out.
The interior door handles have these rubber gaskets. I think most of the vendors sell them.
I recently rebuilt the window channels on my 27 Tudor. The kits that the vendors sell would not fit. They were too thick. My car also had the same kind of channel on the top instead of the rubber in the kit. I found the correct channel online at Auto Parts Warehouse. Made by Stan Pro. I had to rivet on my own clips and cut to fit but it was a perfect fit. StanPro part# 75000038 its 6' long. There is a rubber strip that wipes the glass and keeps water out between glass and door skin. Langs has it. I suspect the doors changed slightly thru the model year. Stanpro website has channel listed by dimension.
