Swing out Quarter Glass-STEELE RUBBER PROD.

Postby 74_Vega_GT » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:06 pm

Hi All,
Steele Rubber Products have now been furnished with 2 original 74 Vega swing-out quarter glass gaskets. I have sent them a left and right pair including the inner plastic ring which is not necessary on their gasket design. I have also sent them a trimmed version of their stationary (non-swing-out) gasket along with the trimmed scrap, where mistakes were made during the modification process found here on the forum. This is a great company to work with as they did not charge me for the second pair that they sent to me. The intent is to have them add the swing-out version of the gasket to their product line-up for others. Peace.

Thanks for your efforts.

"1.800.650.4471 Quality Restoration Parts
1971-77 Chevy Vega 1975-77 Pontiac Astre Hatchback Rear Quarter Window Seals Manufactured and Brand New
When you want to spend your time and money on the restoration of your classic car be sure you purchase quality rubber parts. Steele Rubber Products, Inc.™ has manufactured quality restoration rubber products for classic, antique, and street rod vehicles for over 50 years.
This PAIR of rear stationary quarter window seals replace original factory numbers 9733630 and 9733631. These are only for the fixed/stationary quarter windows, not the pop-out seals. We are in the process of making the seals for the pop-out windows and we hope they will be ready for sale by the end of 2014. This listing for the STATIONARY seals includes both the right and left sides. These are for hatchback styles ONLY. (if you have the 2 door sedan or coupe styling for the vehicles listed below please see our part #70-3552-77, sold separately in our ebay store)

These parts fit: Chevrolet 1971-77 Vega Hatchbacks ONLY, Pontiac 1975-77 Astre Hatchbacks ONLY

Steele's weatherstrips are made from the highest quality of soft, pliable epdm rubber compounds. This flexible, heat and ozone-resistant rubber makes it ideal for your classic car restoration. Due to the advancement in rubber chemical make-up, these reproductions are better quality and will last longer than the original rubber seals.

Steele's craftsmen have designed custom-made dies to ensure a true-to-fit weatherstrip for your vehicle. The company has 100% control of the manufacturing process with headquarters and operations located on the same property in Denver, NC.

They were promising pop out seals 4 years ago, maybe everyone interested should call and ask if they are available.

From what I heard or read somewhere that they had been promised a pair to duplicate years ago that they never received. I may have read that somewhere in the forum archives. Don't know if it is true, may have heard it from them.
