weather strip/window leak 94 convertible

It has been raining for 2 days where I live and water leaks into both rear quarter windows. It leaks in from where the two windows meet and runs down onto my rear speakers. I don't want to spend $45 on a one foot long peice of weather strip. Any sugestions .

Go up to your local autozone over by the adhesives and sealants they sell universal weatherstripping for like $10. Or use the permatex flowable window and glass silicone sealant again like $6.

Mine leaks a bit midway through the front driver window but only in the carwash! Going to go universal.

What do you mean universal. Mine leaked in car washes too but I wash at home now so the only time it leaks is under heavy rain.

I think the design of that seal doesn't work quite right. I was just going to buy some universal weather stripping and fashion my own seal for that section only. Tricky because the vert needs to fold so it's a split seal.

Make sense?

Yea but how are you going to get the after market one to fit in the groove that holds the origional in. I was thinking of buying like an black silicone and pluging the cracks and gaps with a dab

I'm not sure I haven't taken the old one off yet. I planned to cut my own groove but I haven't seen it yet. A thicker seal could then be shaved down to make it for tighter. I won't get to it for a few weeks but might be worth a build thread.
