    Hello,
    I have a 68 skylark convertible here in Spain.
    Which is the reference for the weatherstripping outside the glass in the doors?
    I attach here a picture.
    I need to know the parts nr, maybe better in opgi parts.
    Just the rubber black part outside the glass in the doors.
    Thanks
    Ivan

    I found a kit I pursched last year.
    I expected rubber parts outside...... but seems that outside is just a felt part, and inside it is rubber and chrome.
    Am I right? Any detailed picture of your cars please.?
    Here in Spain is almost impossible to find a similar car.....
    I send you some pics.
    Also I have doubts with the correct position of felts for the back seat windows
    Thanks.

    Hi. Looking at the label it says your kit is for "Special " molding. Hard to tell from the photo but it looks like your car on the top of the door and quarter panel doesn't have it . It was a bit of a rare option on convertibles. A chrome molding feature maybe about an inch wide if I recall.

    Anybody has the right reference number to buy? Or the link?

    I ordered " Repop " brand before but the weather strip was too narrow. Looked nice and made in U.S. but narrow compared to original. I think the one you have is wider and made in U.S. also.
    If you come across a factory looking one ,
    Please post because I need for my 69 convertible also.
    Thank,
    Steve

    When you say narrow I assume you refer to rubber seal that seals against glass. In this pic repop kit BU154A. 69 Buick skylark with special moldings. I have cut it to fit/ replace felt "whiskers" on 68 with special moldings. The OG Weatherstip had rounded rail on top as does repop @.also the 68 had a flat shim between moulding and weather strip. Now I'm gonna have to either reuse it or cut replacement out of bicycle rim liner. IMG_20200623_151626.jpg
