For the t-top anti-rattle weatherstrips...

original extrusion was a solid core - trapezoid shape. 51" in length per side, adhesive tape backing. OEM #20139617.

Good news is this has been reproduced well OR the OEM continues to make and distribute them . the sealing strips that are included with the Fairchild t-top seals are this correct extrusion. but i don't see them sold separately. recognizing that some of the aftermarket manufacturers supply each other, it it key to know that Metro and SoffSeal have the same extrusion available by itself.

Metro part ELP 5020-B is the anti-rattle seals - 2 pieces. best pricing now is on Amazon - $15.13 with free shipping; sold and shipped by the Parts Place. the metro part is on rock auto as well as other sites if you do an internet search. this metro part is probably priced higher on parts place's website and doubtful you'll get free shipping. it's $32 + shipping + tax if bought direct from metro.

SoffSeal SS-5404. buy them direct from SoffSeal - $28.99 + about $7 for shipping or search for that SS-5404 part. their website has a nice pic that can be enlarged to show the detail of the extrusion and that trapezoid shape
