  • Body / Glass: Wagonaire fixed window seals - What to use?

    I understand that the side window seals in the cargo area of Wagonaires are NLA.
    What are the Wagonaire guys using for gasket repalcements?

    Thanks in advance

      Contact a glass shop that does hot rods. They will have a generic rubber molding that will work, and might even look very correct.

        I'm re- using mine. If you study how it all goes together, you may notice all the gasket did was prevent breakage. I think the glazing compound made the seal, and that big moulding hid the mess! Any water leakage went into the little slot and into the 1/4 panel. I doubt they can leak worse than the roof. good luck.

          Mine just crumbled when I took the glass out. I'll come up with something.

            Excellent advice.

            There is also Steele rubber products.

            Vendors will often send short sections of their products for a nominal fee, so you can see first hand what will work for your application.

              You might also try Restoration Specialties ( Supply ) in Windber, PA. That is where I got the gasket pieces for my '64 SR wagon.
