'66 Side Window Weather Striping

Post by Maine Pilot »

Brought my Caliente 2-dr hardtop in to a local body shop that specializes in older cars to have the weather striping replaced as it was leaking and the body molding, (the rubber that surrounds the doors), was old, not fitting well and allowing a lot of noise in once you reached 50 mph. I was given the choice of supplying the parts myself or having the body shop order them (at a 25% premium). I elected to have the shop do it as I wasn't sure exactly what parts were needed.

I picked up the car earlier this week only to find the outside wx striping wasn't replaced although the "fuzzies", (the part that actually touches the inside side window glass), were installed. The shop told me the outside window moldings were the wrong size, (too short), and their supplier wouldn't allow any returns, so now I'm stuck with the older, decaying outside moldings.

Does anyone here know of a reputable source for these moldings?
My wife says I only have 2 faults. I don't listen...and something else
