'67 Roofrail Weather Strip Channels
« on: April 09, 2014, 10:29:08 AM »
All, what is the best adhesive product to install the roofrail weather strip channels above the windows? A wide flat foam type strip is what came off of it originally.

Thoughts?
Thanks.

I am sure some of the "body work" guys could give a more specific brand or part number, but I just did a search the other day regarding this and found a seal on this site:   http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/21863/Camaro-Roofrail-molding-install-tape-1967-1968-1969/

Use single sided adhesive thin foam tape, not the double faced(D/F) tape in that Heartbeat link. Vendors will describe anything as being correct and people will buy it. In their description they don't know the difference between width and thickness either. The weatherstrip channel is adjusted to the windows after window installation, Heartbeat's 3M D/F tape won't allow any adjustment. Foam tape can be purchased at any hardware store, 3M D/F tape at any jobber.

Inline tube sells a ket as well - not sure how many sides is the adhesive, but it looks to be the most correct stuff
