    Window weatherstrip supplier

    Most of you already have this info, but I'm putting it out there for future reference. Repops doesn't appear to be selling the window fuzzy kit any longer. I know there were fitment issues with it, and that may be why they stopped. Steele Rubber lists a kit that comes with the fuzzies for both driver and passenger windows, as well as the long run that fits along the top and rear of the main window.

    That catalog number is: #80-0788-57. They currently are priced at $135 for the set.
    Here's a direct link:
    https://www.steelerubber.com/windowfelts-64-70-chevy-van-80-0788-57

    You'll still need the run that fits into the metal channel on the back side of the vent window assembly. I'm calling them tomorrow to see if they carry this.

    Vent Windows

    These trim pieces are key items. The front door vent windows are the key item for restoration or refurbishment of the front doors and the van. Skills continue to be an additional requirement in order to install it the right way. Course you can't even try to do the job if you don't even have the parts. The right parts. Thank you Smiley.

    I do remember that we ended up having to adjust the mounting points on the division bar rubber. The production holes were slightly off on the new piece. At that time, there was no such thing as "close enough" on the van, so Mac was a good sport about it.
