Soft Top Weather Strips??

I'd be obliged if someone could confirm that these two strips are used to attach the weatherstrips to the duetto soft top and not to the doors.
Thanks

On the side window trim, inside the rubber "C" sections, there are metal strips, 3 for each side, two on top (split folding section), and one on the backside. The two top ones are about 9-10" and the rear one is about 12" long. The one you show is longer than that (19") so it's not a side window trim piece.

Hello,

Could someone show me how the rubber is fixed to the metal strips.
Also the dimensions of the strips.

My metal strips were custom made I think. Please see pics.

Would be much obliged if someone could send me some pics to show how rubber is connected to strips and then to frame.

Thanks,

Robert

There are 6 metal strips(3 per side) that go in the rubber channel. They are held to the top frame with sheetmetal screws and speed nut. There is a rubber tip in each screw thread to protect the top and fingers.
When aligning make sure window glass is against the outer rubber face and not in the channel.
If you do not have the proper metal, pm me. I have extras.

Cheers Jon

Those appear to be the Strips that hold the rear of the top to the body shell on Kammtail Spiders. Longtail Spiders use a one piece which the top is folded under. Window weatherstripping is completely different...see following posts.

Yep! 9 years old. I usually look there first. Hey, he never got an answer so maybe he still needs the info.
Cheers, Jon

Hi Jon.

I would really appreciate if you could tell me the width and thickness of the strips.
Hopefully I will be able to manufacture myself.

Thanks

Robert
