    it is an actual 1970 challenger reproduction, it just happens to be the correct size ..just had to had a few holes on the unseen inner surface to attach it...best of all....it DOESNT have the dribble of shame out down the quarter panel.

    HR,
    Thanks, I thought that I had seen that somewhere but couldn't remember the place. I thought the price was a bit spendy on a repro till I saw what they wanted for a real one :eek:!!! Now if I can just find one in gloss black! May pick your brains on install finer points in the near future.

    Cheers,

    Doc

    the paltry amount I was able to get done over the holiday...roof weatherstrip holders repainted, super expensive goo tape in place and reattached to car.

    Any thing you can call done is one less thing you have to do.

    Cheers,

    window weatherstrip apparently complete, that is some nasty adhesive, my first foray into replacing this kind of stuff. To my untrained eye the pieces I got from Dan Carpenter were excellent...fitted well, with metal frame reinforcement around the mounting screw holes. Used 3m super weatherstrip adhesive as directed. Cured with windows down in the garage for 24 hours.

    i left the stuff attached at the ends then finger smeared the goo in the channel and on the top of the weatherstrip

    He takes 100 years longer than he should, but I have to give him credit for the excellent work he does.

    I must've stayed at a Holiday Inn Express :D


    the way the stuff set so quickly I almost didnt need to tape it but I like to have that extra edge.

    you are too kind as always.

    Definitely take too long...and this stuff is way outta my wheelhouse.

    Did you use the black cement or the yellow monkey snot contact cement? I thought you might've used the black.

    I used the black....I was afraid the yellow would be noticed if there was any over squish. They had 3 choices at my local parts place, super yellow super black and regular black.

    OK, that's fine. The good thing about yellow is you can let it completely dry, and it will still stick to itself (has to be applied to both surfaces) without any squish-out. If it's still liquid on one or both sides, then yeah, it could squish out. I used it on the replacement hatch seal on my Exploder, and nothing shows.

    went with Dan Carpenter door rubbers and wasn't disappointed, came with some new hardware but you will need more screws than they send if you want to replace them all. No issues, great fit!

    Since my originals were completely rotten, and I've spent 8 months driving it without any......It sounds like a funeral parlor in there right now by comparison.....haven't been to highway speed yet though.
