Quarter panel window U-jamb seal fittment ???
« on: December 16, 2013, 03:11:14 AM »
I wonder if someone could comment on...or post a picture of how their quarter window u-jamb window seal is supposed to look installed. I have attached some pictures of mine that I am test fitting with a new quarter panel. It fits down into the cut out on the quarter panel OK but the inner top of the seal does not seem to conform in any way to the quarter panel. I have red arrows in my pictures showing the area I am talking about. It is just kind of hanging out there. I would have thought maybe that it would snap in place but there seems to be no correlation bettween the shape of the seal and the shape of the quarter panel where they mate up to each other.

Thanls.........Dave

Repro U seals leave much to be desired. The quarter needs to be modified to fit the seal's profile. The slot on the bottom of the seal that slides over the jamb is often filled with rubber and needs to be sliced out. They do not fit well on repro quarters nor did they fit well on my GM quarters 8 years ago.
