1965-67 2 door sedan window fuzzies.


Does anyone make a set of door panel fuzzies for the 65-67 B 2 door sedan?

The strips that came off my panels are 9/16 tall x 40 1/2 front, and 22 1/4 rear. Metal backed, and the roll overs were probably bright long ago.

Or better yet, is there any universal cut to length strip that is available. It need not be 9/16 tall, could be more or less. Something that has a decent fuzzie strip. 

 

Second question, how would you attach the new strips? The old were fastened at the manufacturer, with those super HD wire staples that by the look could penetrate amour plate.

RE: 1965 2 door sedan window fuzzies. Questions.


I have no idea what brand these are but I think they would fit. I bought Grand Prix pieces for my Grande Parisienne 10 years ago and they were the right ones.

I would think that they say'original' style  with round bead they should be ok! If they have a 'flat bead then stay away from them .

Whatever you do not change the window channel fuzzies . When I had my 65 2 dr post ( Biscayne) , I removed them only to find out there was not a replacement that would fit "properly" . I looked everywhere to no avail

I actually have a set of run channel for my 65. Because of the advice here on a previous post about it(maybe it was you Howard), I decided to just leave it as is. Thanks. It's not worth the hassle I figure.

On the fuzzies; I see that Steele Rubber products have some kind of universal strips, but I'm still not sure that's what I want. And thanks Carl on the link to the GP set, but it's just the inner's I need.

This might sound crazy, but would there be anyway to apply new fuzz to the strips? It would certainly be cheaper...these parts are pricy all round. 

 

I'd be willing to try something unconventional. Originality doesn't matter here.

Hi,

i ordered window fuzzies from repops.

mine were for my 65 , 4 door wagon

they came with those ridiculous staples.

the sweeps are oversized and I cut to length. The staple holes didn?t all line up so I had to drill a few holes for new spots and they are a bit of a birch to bend :)

We used to have a company in Winnipeg called Gemini Reproductions. They sold all kinds of bulk fuzzy stuff, weatherstripping etc but I think they are long gone. Someone out there must still sell it.

Ordered window felts from Steele for my '62. Part 70-0961-60. It is 9/16" across however not chrome which was not a problem for me. I ordered the staples from Ecklers Late Great Chevy Part 40-141822-1. I have not tackled installation yet because panels not yet upholstered. Figured I would just drill the small holes for the staples when I get to that stage. Attached pic of felts.

Edit...you beat me to this post!

 

 

Thanks for your help Guys.

You may all get a good chuckle, but my wife found this below. For 12 bucks it's worth ordering if just to see if it could work. If not, then it'll make a draft stop somewhere in my old house. How about strip all the old fuzz and it's backing out of the metal base, paint the base, screw it to the panel upper with small countersunk fasteners, then apply new material over the screws? 

It kind of comes close in dimension to the old fuzz, the white backing edge might be an issue, maybe not , but easily painted.

Stay tuned..

I'll see if the McGiver method is viable at all.

If not, then I'll call them. I'd end up with a Sh#t ton left over (maybe way too much Ted), as it's 6x96"!! available cut to length if anyone else is doing this worldwide...

Is 17/64" thick enough Mark? That's awful thin.

There was a older guy in Arizona advertising in the Studebaker club magazine Spinning Wheels that he had a ton of ultra fine brass mesh screen to give away (like the stuff they use in some fuel filters). So, I wrote him and voila I received a roll for free (just postage).

I have enough for life, and actually haven't used any yet.confuse

I think that is around the stock profile, 1/4" or so.

Lets us know the results. Replaced mine in the El Camino. They had hooks on the backside that slid into the door itself. Dont fit very well or stay in place. Cant remember the manufacturer though.

Well, attaching the bare metal strip first, then the fuzzy over top would be a ton easier than trying to match up, then drilling new staple holes in a new OEM type strip (in the exact spots).

Then you'd have to put new "fake" staples through bending them over in a way they'd hold tight. This aint a restoration of the Mona Lisa.

I bought a set from the states years ago from pui interiors, inners and outers for my 66 two dr ht. Just gave the inners away to a friend finishing a convertible. I think Summit carries them as well.

Mike, do you recall if they were Cat Whiskers? I think they were the only ones doing the kit for my 66 at the time I did it about 10 years ago.

Well the Amazon fuzzy strip came today...and I think it'll work just fine for my needs.

 

As a test, I stripped away some of the old material (it's a bear to remove), and placed a little piece of the new in its place (sticks like mad). The new material isn't as tall as stock, but it does protrude the same distance and seems to have a similar or at least close "loft" as the original.

The new white backing showing on the edge is easily disguised with a sharpie. 

 

I'll scrape all the old off the metal backing, clean it all up nice and paint the edges silver. I think this level of trim came with the metal base being zinc plated, and is since long gone. The high level trims got the stainless roll edge I think.

In the end, I'll mount the strip to the panel, apply the new fuzz and lastly give it the sharpie detail. No one should know or care.

Total cost; $12
