Have installed the side window rubber scrappers in Sparky. What a royal pain! They do not fit! Need to try a different part supplier. Recommendations will be appreciated.

I would be interested in knowing what the issue is/was, and the solution. I will be doing this area of my 41 this season (hopefully).

The rubber scrapes/sweeps fit so tight against the window glass and glass frame raising or lowering the glass is near impossible. The rubber is seated in the door panel and door channels correctly. It is a real hassle to install them and a real bummer when after all that struggle, to discover the effort was in vain! Had I thought to search here in the Stovebolt beforehand I might have avoided this problem. There was a long thread discussion in 2015 in the Stovebolt about problems the Advanced Design Truck guys were having with product differences. Apparently, the vendors offer different width rubber products. I have heard from two other ‘46 truck owners that used Jim Carter’s sweeps with success. I have ordered some from them and will give them a try.

I just got done installing window seals and glass in my '36. The set I got from Chevs of the 40s (a Steele product) are WAY to big, as if they are for trucks from the 70's or something. The ones I got from Jim Carter's Oldchevytrucks.com are the correct smaller ones for your 1946!

Yes, that is what I discovered after talking to a couple other guys that experience the same headache. I intended to update the progress on that task. The JC product also fit in the channel a bit easier as well. Seems like for some rubber items Steele is the go to vendor and for others not so much.
