Hi. You might want to try the Willcox Corvette website. Go to the Tech and Install pages. They have a video about installing T top weather strip.. Good luck.

FWIW: new weather stripping often means you have to refit the tops.

What year is the car.... and hopefully you didn't buy the imported crap...

Or the other types made in what I'll say is... oh... no other word.. Crap.. There are two other varieties made in the states that are not made correctly either so that may be the issue.

However, with each top weatherstrip installation, the tops need to be adjusted and shimmed to fit.

Newest Video.. 1970-1982 T-Top Weatherstrip Installation.
