I just got back from purchasing a perfect Kelley hardtop. Has original window cranks and door latches right down to the original green safety glass in the doors. It needs new rear window seals or whatever they are called around them. Does anybody have a line on where to purchase some new ones? I did a quick search on line and couldn’t find any. I’m thinking maybe some older heavy equipment places are the place to look but I thought I’d ask here first.

My local glass shop has rubber channel material. I will use it when I change my cab side windows. So far they have replaced the glass in my windshield and the rear glass on my half cab. Check out your local shops.

This! X2.

There are at least three glass shops in town here that I would try before I ordered window items on-line.
For one I can see & touch the product before I reach for my wallet. I also have window knowledgeable folks to talk with. Both of these set my mind at ease &, to me at least, it is well worth any extra money that I may have to pay. Although, the price is often less than what I would have paid on-line if one includes shipping & handling costs. Lastly these folks are my neighbors, so it helps the local economy.

I have had windows made & installed for some of my Willys wagons & pickups. The work was exceptional, timely & inexpensive.

If you have no good glass shops, try the truck repair shops. That glass in not unlike the windows in some semi s. Body shops may also be of help with this, at least they will know who to talk with.

IHTH, Cpt Logger.

If you have any decent sized Dump Truck outfits around you could call and ask who they have do their work. I would guess with out 21 dump trucks we replace at least 3-4 windshields every year not counting all the various equipment windows. We have a couple of young guys that have a mobile auto glass business come in and do ours EXCELLENT work.
