My '47 has had many PO mods. I've replaced the door rubber and the cab rubber just arrived. I refer to that one as a D type seal or "pork chop" seal. It's goes on the inner part of the door jam and has the metal strip over it. I removed a third piece of rubber from the cab on the outer part of the jam. Under the rain gutter and down along the striker, ect. I'm thinking this was not there originally and was added later due to the other rubber failing. I haven't come across it from normal venders. So is there suppose to be a second cab seal on the outer part of the jamb?
I've attached a few pics for your reference. One pic shows the cab wind lace installed on my '47. The other pic shows where the door rubber goes; however, the rubber in the picture was installed incorrectly and has been subsequently removed. New door rubber is on my 'To-do List' for this Spring. Here is a video link from Dr. J's Restoration RX. [youtube.com] It shows how to install the door weatherstrip. I've also included a shot from the FAM showing the correct orientation of the door weatherstrip.
Pics from an OLD iPad. 1 is the window channel, I think it should be of equal length on each side. Seems the rear is missing / to short? 2 the point on the outer jam I was refering to. Where I removed some weather strip that didnt seem factory. 3 opposite side where it was also removed. 4 lower window Channels front and rear. 5 patch to cover the slot. ??? Looks to me like a front channel was used in the rear and the rectangular opening was closed for an unknown reason. The clip at the bottom of the front guide is obviously for the window channel piece but the channel stops at the top of the guide in the rear. So, is the channel suppose to go to the bottom on both ends or just the front? I looked inside the opposite dood and it seems the rear guide has no channel only felt? For $54 I plan to just order a set of window channels and see how long they are. Couldn't get an answer from the sales rep.

Thanks for the video link HandyAndy It was a much better video than I was linked to from my vendor ( Classic Parts America) Not nocking them, but in there video you turn the seal 90% at the bottom and attach it the " classic" wrong way! It also didn't let the glue tack up properly prior to attachment. Thanks for all and any help.
