76 280Z 2+2 Top of Door Frame Weatherstrip Options

1st post on the forum - Hello!

Looking for what people are using for the very top of the door frame weather stripping - What goes between the window frame and car body when closed?

Currently car has some ratty stick on foam and I'm looking to improve. Looking at the Z supply sites nothing seems conclusively for that area.

Thanks,

Bryan

Look at the cost of individual seals for several places, then look at a complete kit for the entire car. Even if you only use half of the pieces, you're still money ahead.

I carry the original design rubber for the top of the door in stock, all the time. I sell it for 16.95 per door for zcar.com users. I can ship them via USPS. The 2+2 main door and quarter window gaskets are difficult to get but I may still be able to get them for the 2+2 from 75-76 from 1 of the manufacturing companies but I'd have to check. All the other gaskets I can still get. All 3 of the gasket manufacturers do not sell a complete kit for any of the 2+2 cars but I can put one together for you if you decide to go that way and it would save you a few bucks, but not as much as it does for the coupes. Let me know

Bon, I won't have any pics of them until I have the units ready to sell. They will look exactly like the original layout except they'll go to 200 MPH. They'll have accurate KPH numbers on the inner circle just like original which by the way is 335 KPH.
