T Top weather stripping
« on: June 18, 2019, 05:31:07 PM »
I recently purchased a 1978 trans am with American hatch corp t tops and was looking for an aftermarket supplier for the weatherstripping. My car didn't have it when I got it.

I don't believe there is one. I recall someone splicing together 2 sets of Hurst weatherseals, the American Hatch must be similar, just slightly larger.

I haven’t dealt with this company yet, but it’s the best I can come up with for firebird parts.

I've heard of the spliced hurst hatches form a friend, is there a website or someone that knows how to do it? They are slightly larger than hurst hatches.

were u able to find a solution?  I have a set of Hurst Type 1 T tops that will require some splicing because the weather stripping is too long on the B pillar.  I am trying to find some solutions on how best to do the splicing. thanks in advance.

They haven't been online since that post, even if someone posted the answer, it wouldn't have been seen.

Would a flexible, rubber cement not work for splicing the pieces together after they have been cut?

nothing on YouTube taking about similar stuff or the net?

I don't have the issue so I never looked into much!!
