Default Window felts - outer. Recommendations?

85 El Camino.

I need to replace the outer window felts.

Can't believe how expensive?

Any recommendations on suppliers?

Thanks

Can't give you a recommendation for a place but for the felts themselves: make sure of the quality of them. I got some aftermarket ones for mine and the fit was crap. Luckily I was still able to get a set from GM (this is several years ago when you could).

I really want to get the "deluxe weather striping kit" from Dixie MC, which includes the felts. I'm dscared the quality might not be good though? Any body order weather stripping from them?

I've been looking at the same kit myself. My buddy ordered a similar kit from the el camino store everything fit pretty good except for the roof rail seal
