Vents above the rear window?

Took the car out last night, went to a New Years Party. Don;t think Ive recovered completely.........LoL Anyways...... What have you guys done with the vents above the rear window. I get lots of outside noise and possibly water from washing the car. Suggestions?

Maybe you know this, but when the cars were new there was black foam rubber in those vents . . . obviously, it dries out and disintegrates over time.

Some people in the 911 forum have used dense, black foam rubber weatherstripping that they cut to fit and stuffed that into the openings. I haven't done that yet but plan to.

One of my last areas of cold air leakage to plug (different than Paul's idea of "to plug").

I was thinking that or possibly closed cell foam?? It's definitely an issue as the original has deteriorated.

I'm sure closed cell foam would work great. I've also gotten water in there on the headliner when washing the car, like you mentioned.

I just ordered some 2" thick black closed cell foam. I'm going to eliminate the ribbed headliner and use Alcantara instead.

Related but a little different

one of the finer MOD's you can do ...

the flush rear window done BY Dp-motorsports.de

brought to you by the country that ordered Testarossa's without the drivers side rear mirror because it attenuated top speed

an after market Modification not done by saw saw

That's pretty cool! I work with fiberglass, so could make something similar. Neat idea - thanks for posting it.
