Weather Strips, Window Channels & Body Rubber
Copyright 2016 - Michael Angelich and John Weinhoeft
Recently Michael Angelich ran across an old handwritten sheet of part numbers and was kind enough to send the following information for the newsletter. Since it was handwritten, I have taken the liberty of retyping it here, and adding some additional information from my personal experiences.
Note that most of these companies are wholesale or business supply warehouses, so you will need to have a company to order directly from them. However, your local auto body shop or auto body retail supplier
should be able to order for you.

J.C. Whitney parts (replacement, not OEM style) number 81-9909 is a thick bulb that I like the look and feel of but 14-3539 is a smaller bulb that would probably work as would 13-2562.
