Weather seals are what is used on the seams of openings like the convertible top frame, doors, windows and trunks to keep the elements (namely water and air) out of a vehicle and the interior air inside the vehicle, keeping your vehicle dry and minimizing road noise. Weather seals fills gaps and seams in your vehicle and also help to separate parts. Since weather seals come in strips, they are sometimes called "weather stripping" or"weather strips" and serve the same purpose.
When shopping for weather seals (a.k.a. weather strips) you can purchase kits that will help you replace the seals on the entire section of the vehicle (like convertible top frame weather strips) or individual seals for one specific location. With convertible cars there are several seals that are needed for soft top convertible cars. These include the left and right-side rail seals along the convertible top frame, the header seal (front of the frame), pad seals, the rear bow seal, trunk seal, convertible top well (tonneau-lid) cover seals, molded door seal pairs (left and right), pillar post seals (left and right at the windshield), window vent seals and quarter window seals (left and right). These convertible top seals will help create a smooth and snug seal around the edge of the convertible top frame and the body of the vehicle.
Some weather seals are applicable to hard-top vehicles (not convertibles). Specifically the door seals and trunk seals. TopsOnline also carries carries some windshield window gaskets which seal the glass of your windshield to the body of the vehicle and are applicable to all vehicles.
