its a closed cell foam tape, Hemikiller on this website was the go to guy to get a roll of it. it is very different from home depot weather tape, the glue was very strong on it.

unfortunatly Hemikiller went MIA last year, i do not know where he was able to order it from, it was a 1" by 1/2" foam tape if i remember.

The rear window uses a one piece rubber gasket. Chuck http://www.ohiomustang.com/store/order_p...itemid=351

everyone forgets the rubber gasket is for the glass but under the gasket on the window lip you must install the foam tape the gasket pretty much seals nothing without the foam underneath.

I have always used liquid butyl sealer (C5AZ-19554-A equivalent) sparingly, where the rubber gasket meets the metal lip. I guess I can learn something everyday, if I'm paying attention. Chuck

maybe thats why my back window leaks so bad!!!!Huh The guy that painted the car for me probably didnt put the tape under the rubber. Its leaked ever since i got it painted. Never messed with it cause it rarely gets wet. Maybe that will be a little project for this winter. Good info guys!! i always thought it was just a rubber seal!!

I'll be looking for that drawing, Scott! How long will you be in Colorado? Are you flying out of Denver or Grand Junction? Or...driving?
