I am building a 1977 Trans Am. the car has america hatch t-tops in it. Does anyone know where one can find seals for that top, or something that will work. The car is in very good shape and i hate to junk it because of the T-tops.

Ames performance, Classic industries, Performance Years and Year One all sell weatherstripping for most Firebirds and Trans AM's

I have a 1977 Trans Am which had these tops also. I could not find replacement seals, so I replaced the roof with a fischer top. These seals are readily avaliable.

I have the same issue with a 1977 Formula.I may have a solution as I found a driver side seal. I've done months of research via internet as well as calling around the US. I did find a manufacture that may make them if I find others interested.

If anyone else is looking for American Hatch Seals, please respond!!

I am also looking for seals.  I have a 78 Camaro with the American T-Tops and haven't been able to find parts for them anywhere.  Let me know if you hear anything from the manufacturer you are in contact with.  Thanks.

I worked at the Pontiac dealer when they were new. They always leaked, it was a real pain. The factory t-tops leaked too. Here in Seattle it rains a lot.

I'm told seals can be made for $425 a set but need at least 4 people to order - - It will take about 4-6 weeks - Anyone interested?

Any luck on the 4 people needed? I am interested in a set. I am in contact with Metro Moulded parts and hopefully can set something up with them. I have heard of scabbing two sets of Hurst together yet it is expensive.
Or have you or anyone else come up with a solution?

No luck on the 4 --- Any luck with Metro? I've heard about scabbing two sets of Hurst as well but the only problem is they don't fit into the track as I bought a set to see if it was possible - On to the next experiment
