Default 84 elky's Door Weatherstrip and sound deadening

Sometimes El Camino Central is too much..hahaha..in a good way..too much info. So, sorry these 2 questions have been talked about many times for different year models and either help or the link to the post that refers would be appreciated.

Door weatherstrip: I'm in need roof rail and door weatherstrip and saw some old post (2012) about it but was wondering the current best choices...soffseal, metro (rockauto)..mmm something steele in Colorado? Some post talked about where not to go and some where too go. Oh, and the Belt Weatherstrip / Window Scraper Seal (felt and rubber) This one I printed out a while back(I think I still have it ) was where to go to buy the material to redo the rails instead of buying them. Was this still the preferred way (cheaper).

Sound deadening material: I have some Thermo-tec for the floor but wanted to put more in the doors/roof etc. and saw post of the Peel & Seal Instant Waterproof Repairs 6-in x 25-ft Aluminum Roll Flashing Item # 154017 Model # PS625 at Lowes and Home Depot..was this the preferred stuff to use?

I just installed the Softseal door weather strips , they seem like a decent repo , be sure to get some 3m weather strip adhesive to glue down the big pads at front and rear or they will lift up on you .

I put in the seals I purchased from Mike's Monte. Couldn't get them to seal. I just purchased new seals from Steele Rubber Products. They are awesome.

I went to the Steele Rubber Products website and saw the:

Roof rail weatherstrip
p/n: 82-0037-68.........................$135.00
and
Door weatherstrips
p/n: 70-3534-72.........................$124.30

saw my shipping to Hawaii was 75.00 then put my brothers zip in (Arkansas )and there was no charge..must be no charge for the 48 states..i'll see how big the items are then maybe have my brother put them in a USPS box and send them to me.

I saw the beltline weatherstrip pn 80-0890-57 for 181.30 and beltline weatherstrip pn 80-0535-57 for 135.40. Wonder why the difference??..the cheaper one said "made from standard aftermarket material" wonder if this is Chinese stuff vs made in usa stuff . I saw some universal beltline weatherstrip and scraper seal stuff from 37.00 to about 44.00 a pr., guess I would have to measure width and heights on those to get the correct one for mine, any of you try this universal stuff?

Different application - '66 Elkie - but the generic door weatherstrip I bought through a major parts place fit like crap. Way too fat, and too solid. Couldn't get close to closing the doors!

Paid about twice as much for Steele Products weatherstrip, but it was well worth it! Perfect fit and spongy, like it should be!

ok, thanks all for the Roof rail and door weatherstrip recommendation for the Steele Products vendor. I went to Lowes the other day to take a look at the Peel & Seal Instant Waterproof Repairs 6-in x 25-ft Aluminum Roll Flashing Item # 154017, is this stuff really for sound deadening for the roof and doors? it looks so thin and seems to be for waterproofing. And for the beltline weatherstrip universal stuff.. it looks like I may have to have it shipped to my brothers house as well..shipping to HI is $50..I'll have him throw it in a tube and send it USPS..surely USPS cant want $50 for shipping

Peel & Seal all the way. It won't come off so mark all the screw holes.


This stuff is great and I think the complete job with padding cost less than $130.00 from top to bottom I left nothing uncovered. Lowers is the only place with the Peel/Seal don't use the stuff from HomeDepot it's crap.




Here's doing the inner door panels and there's more videos in my photobucket

Here's some video of it done.

Also anti-fatigue padding at Lowes you want deadening and Cush in the carpet.

Thanks JJ..saw the link

Robert,
Yours, I believe was the one I saw posted from 2012 and I couldn't see any of your work done but now since you reposted the pics and vids I saw all of it..So what I gather is the peel and seal is good for the vibration and somewhat for sound but the anti-fatigue matting is for sound barrier, I don't recall seeing it at Lowes..it must be on the big spools they use for the carpet. How did the fitment end up on the door panels and headliner with those extra layers..everything snap and pop back into place ok? That anti-fatigue matting you used in the door skin panels..did you glue them in or cut them with a tight fit?

The headliner has a opening all around the frame so the padding slip in like nothing was added. door panels fit fine. The padding is on the big rolls.
