Re: OMG. Can somebody please make glass channel seals for us!
Omnipotent is slowly working on all the window scrapers & seals for our cars, but he's a small operation, and there just isn't enough demand to justify a lot of these parts. It still comes down to dollars and cents. I looked into beltline weather stripping for 2 door L-body's. I found a place that would reproduce them, but there was $2500.00 for the tooling, plus minimum first order was 1000 pieces. As much as we would like to believe the demand is there, it just isn't. 1000 pieces would be a ten year supply. Most companies aren't willing to lock up cash for that long. Take a long hard look at this site and T-M.com, there may be 15-20 guys on each forum currently working on a G-body or L-body. That's only 40 sets of seals, what is a company going to do with the other 960 sets?
