Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

Does the top mettle bead sit above the edge of the window? Do you know what brand they are?

I see them on the Brother's site for $29.99, but it doesn't say if this is for one or both doors. Do you know?

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

We own a glass shop that specializes in older cars/trucks. A lot of times we make our own inner/outer wipes if we can't get the right parts. We also don't always use the supplied clips, but instead take them off and use #4 screws, 3/8" long with a countersunk head. We position the felt, clamp it in place, and drill a 5/64" pilot hole. The screw heads bury deep enough into the felt that you don't have to worry about the head of the screw scratching or breaking the glass. This lets you position the felt where you want it instead of relying on the clips to locate it. I just did this with my '66 C10 and it worked great; it actually pulls the felt tighter against the door so that there's more room for the bottom channel to fit between the felt and the glass is easier to roll up all the way. The channel fitting between the felt is normal on these trucks, but the felt has to be tight against the door and can't be to thick or else the channel won't fit. The holes that the clips fit into are usually messed up on these trucks as the bottom edge around the hole is really flimsy, so screws are usually a better way of fastening them.

I might be able to get the owner here to make a small batch of properly fitting inner/outer wipes within the next few weeks. They have a stainless bead that won't fade over time and we have jigs to properly shape them. We can also supply the correct screws if you prefer to use screws instead of clips.

I'd definitely be interested in seeing a set.

I haven't got my glass yet, but on this issue - could you buy like 1/4" or so taller glass and have it installed?

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

We cut flat glass so we could cut it taller... The problem with that is it wouldn't roll down all the way, the stop at the bottom isn't adjustable so you'll have the glass sticking up above the felt/door edge when it's rolled down all the way. If the proper felt is used the glass should roll up all the way.

I would be interested in a couple of sets.

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

I don't understand the screw fastening you are describing. If the screws go into the same lip as the clips used to go into then how do you get a driver in the gap to set the screw? Do the screws go into both inner & outer flanges the clips used to go into? How do you drill the holes for the screws?
Thanks.

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

I tried to install the ones from brothers and they are the same as the ones from Steel Rubber products and LMC. They are all horrible. The clips they use are just the same and are impossible to remove without destroying the clips. I can not figure out why they don't even make the clips like the originals. They are also to long on the end that has the curve. So I had to trim it. This sucks. I am trying to install the ones that are meant for a 60-63. I wonder if the people that have had success with any of these products bought the ones for a 64-66.

the ones I got from LMC did not have the chrome bed, steel is known for there rubber they probably buy there fuzzies from a supplier just like the rest of them and may not always buy from the same supplier I hope the ones I just ordered from brothers are the same as the last set

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

What year are you ordering them for. The 64-66 might be awesome and the 60-63 horrible.

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

I would be interested also. How do you drill the holes and screw in the screws inside such a thin channel? I would need them for a 60-63 though.

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

You have to drill into the flange at an angle, no room to go straight in.

Re: Window felt weatherstrip (beltline weatherstrip)

Page 499 of the Auveco catalog has some interesting clips that could be used on the felts (or newly made sweepers for the outside) . . . maybe.

This is kind of the idea I was thinking of in an earlier post. In fact, have you tried using the plastic body fasteners that have the rings of plastic on them? I was thinking if you have a good piece of late model beltline weatherstrip with the felt inside and the rubber squeegee that even went out over the top door edge, you could locate the factory door fastener holes, drill the weatherstrip accordingly and press in the fastener. With the plastic head it wouldn't ever mar the glass and would probably stay in place for a while...
