Robert,

I believe they are the same, mine are installed in the door opening...start at the bottom "grove" to include the hardtop..all the way around the door opening.

I have seen two types used with the fiberglass top. The standard SW style and individual pieces for the top and back.

I just used the standard station wagon seals, they're the same. You need to start installing at the top since the top corners are molded into the part and need to be in the right place (they're also "handed" right and left). Sometimes there is bad alignment between the flange on the body and the flange on the top at the rear edge of the door. You can fudge this wee bit by bending the flange on the body a little bit. Obviously its best to try and align the top first, but you dont have much play there.

looks like the Sw seals are the winners here. I'll order up a set and give them a go if the set i have does not work out. I did get a set with the truck but they were not stored very well and are bent in intersting ways.

The tops came with SW seals as standard (I had a new top at one time). You do have to be careful bending them for them to store properly. I've kept the original seal box and thats what I keep all my seals in now.
