No. The channel rests against the stationary glass and the 3/8" rubber. It has to be straight as an arrow so the sliding glass can slide open and closed. You can see the rubber in picture #32 and picture #34 sandwiched between the channel and the outer trim.
Hello Mark , I'm working on a 1953 GMC Suburban and have a couple of questions regarding the sliding rear side windows please. (1) Where did you purchase the "vertical whiskers" strip that is attached to the fixed window ? (2) Where did you purchase the 3/8"x3/8" rubber strip that fills the gap between the sliding window channel and the outer trim ? Thank you sir. Whitman
Thanks for the info. I contacted Classic Parts regarding the shipping costs. They quoted me "oversized" UPS $90.00 from their company in Missouri to me in Massachusetts ! Wow!! They said the weatherstrip ships in a long straight box. The weatherstrip kit costs $199.95. Don't think I can afford that shipping cost. I'll try contacting Steel Rubber and see what they have for the Suburban side windows.
