  • Body / Glass: GT Hawk quarter window outer seals

    Hello folks,
    I just received from SI a new set of quarter window outer seals for the Hawk. Unfortunately, these are not identical to the older ones. They are much taller and have two lips instead of one. So, before heavily trimming them, I was wondering if you had any suggestions about this. I also wonder if the furnished clips can be used for this application as they are slightly different from the old ones.
    Nice day to all.

        I will take some pictures tomorrow. Unfortunately, I only have remnants from the old seal and does not know if they really looked like this when new.

          Older Hawks used the "Cat Whiskers" Fuzz strips like the rear quarter Inner ones, but later ones were a Rubber single edge Lip SEAL they're similar to a '64 USA Daytona Hardtop that does have a longer Length.

            Thanks for the confirmation Rich. That's what I've found on the car. Here are the pictures. If I want the new seals to look like the old ones, it seems I will have to cut a length from the bottom as well as from the top. Click image for larger version
