Hey there, sorry for not replying earlier to your message. So the weatherstripping around the top and down the side is most likely there to serve as a centering devise to make sure the windows goes in correctly. The wedges also help with the centering but allow drainage out of the holes at the bottom of the frames. I believe the wedges had the thick side face out from the vehicle if I remember correctly. I am not sure how the window would fit without these two components. I found a likely good candidate (and cheap) weatherstripping on Amazon that is about the right dimensions. Its a D-shaped door weatherstripping. I should have it in a couple days and I'll post up if it is indeed close to the OEM piece.Resurrecting this thread a touch. I'm in the midst of reconditioning a set of sliders I got last year (finally made the time to work on them).
A few questions on the rebuild:
_ Does anyone know if the weather stripping on top @red66toy referenced is imperative? Costing it out those bad boys are not cheap from overseas (ie Japan). I didn't see @sl33py mention anything about it, nor anything in Tinkers build.
_ Those rubber wedges, which way do they face to make the drainage work properly?
Yup, I love it. We did it in anticipation of dogs mainly but for sleeping in the back it will be nice as well. Now I need to figure out a good screen for them.I'm stoked other folks are doing this upgrade to their 60's.... that and the WagonGear Storage panels were my favorite improvements to mine. Keep it up.
