Title: Seal T-Tops
Post by: august2019 on August 11, 2019, 12:56:00 PM
Is there a simple way to use clear or black silicone to seal my t-tops, between the glass and the body until I can get it to the shop to get the leaks fixed?

I have brand new weather-stripping installed but leaking like rivers on both outside rear corners. I want to avoid getting my interior ruined between now and getting it to body shop.

Back in the day people used to inject stuff INTO the hollow interior of the molding. Linseed oil will puff them up a little. Walmart sells a RV rubber reconditioner.

I think 85% of them leak.I use a sheet of plastic when mine is parked outside to keep water out of the car.
