Windshield Rubber Seal
« on: February 07, 2018, 05:41:50 PM »
I have been making my 33 5W glass patterns and been using Steele Rubber 70-1191-52 to seal up the patterns. Steele suggested 70-1195-52 but it's hard to work with and the body overlap just isn't there.  The 70-1191-52 only leaves about a 1/4" overlap.  The seal on my 34 has an overlap of at least 1/2"

No problem installing the front windshield and two quarter windows...but the rear pattern just isn't working, it really needs an overlap of "at least" 3/8".

So I'm looking for and other seal source suggestions.


Put this on the HAMB also...

The Steele website they indicates 70-1195-52 for both 33 and 34....neither one is really great, the lip is too narrow.

I&I use either Metro Molded parts or Steele, I would assume for The Filling Station, Steel is also their supplier too.

Before you buy anything check with me..I should have enough left over for a front windshield...my only problem is the rear window install....probably has something to do with the chop.  Going to look it over again to see if the lower opening can be modified.

I'm using 1/4" glass and 70-1191-52 because it fits better than the Steele recommended  70-1195-52.

why not convert the rear window to a wind down hand or electric.  I did that to my 35 coupe and made huge diff to inside temps.  I used one out of a 34 master.   I know the 33's had rumble seats and they had the roll down rear window factory equipped.

I used side window flexible channel run to make it work.

Thought about it, my 34M has a roll down window with rumble seat. The 33M deck lid hinges are in the way (the way I fabricated the hinge brackets)...would need to install rumble seat hinges at the bottom.
