Get your w/s weatherstriping from Corvette Rubber Co. It is probably the only one that is dimensionally correct and you can get it from Wilcox Corvette who is one of the forum vendors. I initially bought one from Paragon but when I called them and asked who supplied them, they would not confirm nor would they deny that it was Corvette Rubber Co., so I sent it back.
Also, use ONLY the original GM w/s clips, all the others are quite different and not easy, if not impossible, to use. Just ask me, I have $70.00 worth of clips from LIC in my garage drawer that are useless.
Most importantly, use a professional glass shop so that if the w/s cracks the breakage is on their shoulders. The installation charge is well worth the piece of mind. Good luck.
