Is there a good source for new FL era window sweeps,window guide channels, I'm not sure if that's what they officially called. I found some online but they were for newer mopars. What are you guys using?

The usual cast of characters (Bernbaum, etc) probably have what you need but there are other sources. I bought the channels, guides and felts (aka "cat's whiskers) at a local shop ("The Old Car Center") that caters to Chevy and Ford owners. The channels come in various sizes and with and without stainless trim (I went for the stainless trim version). They come in rigid and flexible 8 ft sticks. (I used both). The cat's whiskers also come in 8 ft sticks with and without stainless trim.

Here are some of my hints for the flexible window channel install:

You can use hook and loop tape to repair the vent window channels. You only use the one side, I guess it would be the loop. The cat whiskers can be bought from Quirey (not sure if they are back to work) and the outer one is replaced with vent window assembly removed.
