The 68 2DHT New Yorker is completely apart as a lot of you know! Windows removed, weather stripping removed since we had to unscrew the roof rail. All rubber on this car was absolutely thrashed. The weatherstripping was just falling apart anyway I tried to move it. A quick search online for cat whiskers and window seals and weatherstripping doesn't bring up much, AND brings the fear that certain parts MIGHT be advertised as a C Body part but it doesn't fit.

My question is, what is everyone doing for replacing the window rubber / cat whiskers? Has anyone used universal weatherstripping and just cut down to size??? I need everything. Quarter window seals, cat whiskers / window sweeps, sail panel window sweeps, and most importantly the roof rail weatherstripping. Not too familiar with who supplies what, but I appreciate if you can point me in the right direction, as I'd love to have the car on the road soon! I'd hate to have window rubber keeping me from taking it out and enjoying it finally...

Can't get back to the car till Monday, but I plan on dropping the whole dash and heater box and removing all the rest of the clutter from the firewall. Should be interesting!

Recently purchased cat whiskers and rubbers from Detroit Muscle Tech for my 65.

On the slab cars the windshield needs to come out to get to the dash bolts.
They are under the glass and gasket.
But once the dash is out the HVAC is very accesable.
