  • Stanchion rubber

    Any one know the slot the rubber gasket goes in? With the shield closed it looks like to would be in the outside groove but there is the middle one as well. Is the rubber when shield is closed on the outside or inside of shield? I would assume out?? What the hell I know...

    Need to post a picture or something, as you've lost me here. Any stanchions I've ever seen only have one slot.

      Randy...the center slot seems too big for the correct rubber I have.

        The center slot is the only place it can go. I had to glue the last ones I did as they kept working loose.

        I honestly don't know which side of the windshield it should be on - mine seems to prefer being on the inside and since I'm not concerned about getting water in (never drive it in the rain) I leave it there. Placed on the outside seems to most logical, unless you fold your windshield out often, but then it will be on the inside when you rotate the windshield back in!!. Maybe someone else will chime in in this regard or maybe you can find a good picture among all the ones of Mark Maron's roadster that Mitch posted.

        28/29 roadster/phaeton stanchion weatherstrip installation
        by wrndln
        I have a couple questions about how the rubber weatherstrip is installed in a 28/29 open car windshield stanchion. I have some rubber weatherstripping I believe is correct - pictured below. There is a long piece of rubber weatherstrip that goes in the slot in the bottom of the windshield frame. It is symmetric, so no problem there. However, there are 2 shorter rubber weatherstrip pieces that are suppose...

        28-29 open vehicle stanchion rubber
        by wrndln
        I have a couple questions about installing the rubber in 28/29 open vehicle windshield stanchions. The replacement rubber I bought several years ago in not symmetric. It has a slight offset (a very small step) on one side (second picture) and on the top of the first picture. The side without the slight step is totally smooth (last picture). I am hoping to learn the correct orientation of the rubber...

Need some guidance on installation of the windshield header rubber and interior trim pieces that appear to be missing. Not sure how to miter the windshield side rubbers to meet with the header rubber to avoid air noise. Also, it appears I am missing something in the upper corners of the windshield interior trim pieces...

        intallation of windshield rubber gasket.
        by ClaudeC
        The bottom portion of the gasket just hangs straight across they curved windshield bottom.
        Does this require adhesive or is it supposed to be pushed into the slot and held there by friction alone?

        Old rubber windshield gasket
        by BillLee/Chandler, TX
        I'm trying to clean up a windshield frame for my '29 Tudor. The one that came with the car was never properly restored and is close to rusting completely away.

        Got a real nice one from Berts and am now working on it. What are the options for getting the old, hard rubber gasket out of the frame? The stuff that's still there is hard and reluctant to remove, stuck in the little channel all...

        Open Car Windshield Questions
        by dmdeaton
        Are there any good links or resources for info on how to adjust and assemble the windshield assembles on a open car? I am taking off the spotlights on the roadster and one stanchion I am having issues with. Mounting holes are too large for the countersink bolts.
        Both lower stanchions don't seem to line up and pull in when tightened. This binds on the windshield. I have the upper gaskets in...

        Is this rubber seal which the vendors sell an original type item, or is it aftermarket?

        31 Roadster windshield install questions and help
        by old31
        I have watched the videos and done a search on installs.

        Which material is correct?

        The material on the left is what I took out. The edges do not appear to be cut, and to me it looks like the right stuff. On the right is Brattons and that you must cut the inside and outside after install. Why is it so wide?

        I put silicone on the glass and it just drags and tears...

        Finish of Rubber Seal between windshield and body
        by P. Crosby
        If the windshield frame is painted upper body color and it seems I have seen pictures on the assembly line with the frame next to the body, is the rubber seal between the windshield frame hinge and the body plain, as in rubber colored black or painted. Seems like it is installed after being painted therefore unfinished?

        Windshield Rubber

        Just trying to figure out what's up. Pictured are the two sides of the replacement windshield rubber which installs on 3 sides of the windshield frame. If the frame is laying with the outside (front) side down, which side of the rubber is up?...
