For many years here at Steele we’ve been helping people find weatherstripping solutions for their projects that have no OEM replacement with our Universal Products line. We have a large selection of profiles to choose from that can seal anything from a hot rod to your doggy door!
Recently a customer called in looking for a seal for the windshield of his 1993 Nissan UD Rollback truck. This is definitely not something we carry an OEM style replacement for but with a little guidance from our Product Specialist the customer found a few seals he thought might work for what he needed.
Three samples later he narrowed it down to the right one and ordered the amount of weatherstrip he needed. He even installed it himself and it looks awesome!
The part he used is the 60-0661-99 Dense Rubber Extrusion
“This was for my 1993 Nissan UD Rollback. The local glass guy didn’t want to install because it wasn’t original. He says the windshield will fall out, sold me the glass and left. My neighbor and my wife helped to get it installed and it fit perfect! I’m happy with it, no leaks! The help from the rep was great. They also sent me samples 3 times to help me figure this out. I appreciate the help!” -Carmelo D. (actual customer review)
