Weather Stripping!

Can cost alot if you go thru Carpenter...cheaper thru Whitney, National Parts depot...about $700 for EVERYTHING (except windshield).

Time, 4 to 12 hours depending on how much you replace. Door rubbers only in about 2 hours. Dry time for glue, another 2 hours.

Difficulty, easy to moderate (depending on what all you replace). Door seals and cowl seal are fairly easy, anti rattle kits are so-so. Wing rubbers can get a little more difficult (IMO).

75 Miles per Hour without whisltes, rattles, and cold breezes, worth it all!

If your rubber is in good condition, an hour cleaning and conditioning it is easy and cheap!

You can straighten your front or rear, chrome bumper. After removing it and the brackets, I used two dead blow hammers (with soft faces) of slightly different weights. Put the heavier one against the low spot and hit the high spot with the lighter one. You'll get a feel for what to do after a few hits and be able to fix more than you thought.
