window fuzzy/wipers installation

Post by enio45 » Sun Oct 13, 2019 7:35 pm

Looking for some advise of the best adhesive to use to attach the window wipers/fuzzy strip material to the horizontal
metal strips that are on the top of the doors - this is the cavity/slot where the window goes up and down.

I bought some replacement wipers, they have a cloth covering and a fuzzy material which look consistent with my originals - however, i have seen numerous times - over time these come loose and get jammed up looking terrible.

They get glued to the metal top of the door strips - the strips are aluminum.

Any thoughts as to the best way to attach these with the some type of glue, adhesive or epoxy?

Appreciate the thoughts...........

PS....im working on the ellena car, but i believe the 330's have a similar piece of material and attachment consideration.

Hi Ed,

Considering you're working on an Ellena, and was a different body builder than the "normal" cars I've seen built by Pininfarina and Scaglietti, the way they attached the window felts might be different. In Pininfarina and Saglietti cars, I believe the felts were attached with a combination of contact adhesive and bevel headed screws. I've also used pop rivets depending on the application.

Good luck.

Tom, correct you are, no rivots or screws used here. The trim piece, attached to the door inner and outer upper sill is attached by a countersunk sheet metal screw - very small, leaving the trim surface very flat and smooth.

Seems to be some type of adhesive only that bonds the two together.

Ed, I would use 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive. It comes in black and yellowish. It dries fast and holds well.
