I am restoring/customizing a 53 firedome eight, six passenger, 4 door sedan. I purchased a rubber kit from Kanter that includes the windshield and back glass seals. They do not fit and I can see no way to make them work. According to Kanter they have had no complaints before. Unfortunately they can offer me no proof. They asked me to return the seals and include a sample or profile of the originals. The originals were in such poor condition that I do not have a profile. I have been told that Bernbaum probably sells the same seals and they do not fit. Does anyone have a profile of the original seals or a solution that will work to install the glass and hold the original chrome trim? The shop manual is of no help since the picture is of a different model seal and describes a different seal installation. I have contacted Steele Rubber and they don't have the seals but they do offer several general use seals that may or may not work. I'm hopeful that someone out there has the answer.
