I am looking for pictures of the front top of the door weatherstripping installed on a 69 Coupe. The big thick molded end. Also shots of the same area when the door is closed. I am having clearance issues with my newly installed door weatherstripping and the windshield pillar post weatherstripping.

I'll be more than happy to take some pictures for you. The only problem is that my 69' is being shipped to me from another state. I'll check in again once she's here.

I wish I could help.... I recently stripped out my interior, windshield, trim, and weatherstripping (referece http://corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87892 ). Actually, I could benefit from responses to your post.

Sure.
The reason I asked was because I recently put on new door weatherstripping. The problem is that the molded end of the weatherstripping is too large and is coming into contact with the pillar post weatherstripping. And its not just a matter of a few centimeters.
Here is a picture that highlights the areas that are interferring with each other. I recently adjusted my doors, so there is no way I can drop the doors down lower.
Also, I've noticed that the large molded end of the door weatherstrip rubs the window once its almost all the way up.

I took several pictures of the area that you need. The pictures are quite large and I will post them on my site and post the link. The problem is that i forgot my password to access my site. I'll be on the phone with tech support tomorrow and will get them posted for you afterwards.
