    Okay folks, we have been taking out the old weather stripping and trying to clean up the grooves to install the new. Any advice to get that old adhesive and rubber stuff out? I have been trying to use a gasket scrapper but it's taking forever..

    Thanks!

    Burbo, heat gun and wire wheel will work! We are not even close to nice paint as of yet. But we do have most of the parts we need thanks to awesome folks on this site!

    Ziggy, There are many sites out there to get the weatherstripping. I honestly look at camaro central, Fbody Warehouse etc.. I look at forums people have posted here about problems they have had at different places IE dried out rubber.. and I try to get what I want for the best price good quality. I am pretty sure I got my weather stripping at Camaro central. There have been so many purchases I have made since April when we got our 78 it's hard to remember them all. Good thing is there are so many on here that are willing to help you along the way..

    My weatherstripping projects have been put on hold. It's warm outside and we have been working on outdoor projects. Might get back to it next weekend :)
