I replaced all the fe;t weather seals on my 67'. The problem is they are about 1/4 inch away from the glass (on the exterior). Is it the windows that are not tilted correctly or bad weatherstips? I've tried to adjust the glass in the door but back of the roller is hitting the inside of the door and getting hung up or the corner of the 1/4 glass is hitting the rubber seal on the door jam.

Friend I am glad you started this topic. I have the same problem with the weatherstripping lining my trunk. Every time it rains or I go to the car wash, I find my trunk flooded with water. I've replaced the weather stripping with new universal type stripping, but my problem still persists. If ANYONE has a solution to this problem, believe me I am far more than open to suggestions.

Garfield,
One of the most common problems with the trunk is the spoiler holes and the deck lid emblem holes. The water leaks in from those 2 places and it puddles in the trunk causing the rust that we see so commonly. It never dries out because the trunk air is pretty stagnant. If you have a spoiler you might want to caulk those holes before you screw it down. Nobody ever does the first time. Just something to check.

Garfield, find a good friend you trust and hand him a water hose. Crawl into the trunk with a flashlight and have him hose the deck down. You will see the source of the problem. If he is a good friend, he will let you out.

Stingr69 is correct. I spent half of my early life in a dealership looking for teh leaks. The ONLY way is the climb in the trunk method. I would also advise checking teh rear glass to insure it is not the source of the water. I have found many cars with a leaking seal at the rear glass and this was the culprit. You may also have to adjust your trunk lid hinges to seal at the edge. For some reason, I cannot spell THE correct today!
