Hard Top Repair

So this spring I want to fix up my hardtop. The weatherstripping around the glass is starting to dry rot and the to strips that run between the side panels and the back panels were never there as far as i know any body have any idea where I can get any of this. Is the glass weatherstripping regular stuff i can get from a glazier??? What is the stripping that is used between the side and rear panels I have no clue as I have never seen it.

Rob D has a roll of the wierd side panel stuff. I think you're better off just ordering the rest of the weatherstripping in a bulk roll from RDS. The same stuff does all the windows except for the rear hatch with the custom molded part. Also do a search on this site to find the correct tool for putting the windows back in. This is not a hard job if you have the tool.

The back window piece is a specially molded part because it has the 90 degree angles at the bottom corners. It uses the same filler strip (cut into 2 pieces) as everthing else though. RDS had that seal on their website, but its a pretty expensive part IIRC.

Rob D is Rob Dassler or Roadsiderob, he owns a Rover shop in Albuquerque.

Jim, after looking at the thread about your top project i was wondering if there was a clearer picture of stripping on the rear of the hardtop. where the side panels and rear quarter panel glass comes together?

Where the glass comes together? I think you mean where the panels join? Either way, I'll look for a better pic, but the rubber strip there is a wierd custom thing that fits into the groove.

It is a strip that covers the gap, and has an "L" shaped lip sticking out of it that fits between the panels as they sandwich together.
