    LMC carries it all now,so does Classic Industires.
    The side-door window frame pieces that go in the top are particuallry hard to find because they had the big metal-innard boxy thing at the rearward-bottom portion of it, but I think these two sources carry them now.
    I've not used the stuff my self, and I've heard some people complain they don't fit like original, but there's not much other choice. I've looked, short of being lucky and coming across NOS pieces, this is it.

    I bought all my weatherstripping from LMC for one of my 74 Blazers. The only problem I had was the seal on the top between the fiberglass top and the upper windshield frame. The bottom seal that goes on the upper windshield frame was too long. I simply cut about 1" from the center of it to make it fit and added a little RTV. Other than that, they all fit just fine. I bought every seal they make for my 74. All but the above fit well. The quality is average.

    Did you get yours to seal up at the top corners where the door caps meet the top seals? Mine leaks like crazy! It's really pissing me off /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif especially when we get the MONTHS of rain here in the PNW! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I haven't turned the hose on it yet. I still have to install the wing window glass on the driver side.
