1927 Buick Model 27 “Standard” Window Molding/Rubber Availability?

Recommended Posts

So all the rubber window molding is cracked up and I mean Windshield, Quarter Glass, and Rear Window...... all of it!

 

Anyone know the availability and/ or have a link or info on it?

 

Any tips on replacing it?  I have a friend that owns a glass company but highly doubt they’ve ever worked on anything quite this vintage!

 

Any help is as always greatly appreciated!!

 

Most importantly, I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous New Year!

I ordered ALL my rubber replacements from Steele.  Every piece fit as it should.

Did everything myself.  

Carefully note how you remove everything and take photos as you go.  It really helps the re-install

 

Use the "string technique" when you install your rubber moldings.  It really makes things go nice and easy.

 

Here's how I did the rear window glass:

 

 

 

Front windshield glass / rubber install.  In this post, I had help and we used tools to pull the rubber over the pinch weld.  The tools did make a couple small marks in the rubber.  The string method I used on the rear glass left no marks in the rubber at all:
