Coupe Restoration..Rear roof vents - plastic foam strip bleeding??

What are you guys doing to seal the rear cabin vents on your coupe restorations.?? Part #911-503-507-01 seems to be long ago NLA

With at least a dozen current full restorations going on amongst the Pelican brain trust...what have you used as a replacement or alternative. Photos always help

Thanks in advance!

I used a piece of foam that was originally for window mount a/c units to seal the window gap. It stops water from getting in, but still allows air flow.

This thread motivated me to look at mine... no foam found on my 6 owner 1973.5; instead, there is a hard black surface recessed ~ 1 cm back

I probed it with a toothbrush handle and it is indeed hard - maybe plastic or hard rubber.

Anybody know if P AG put foam back there in 1973.5 cars? Harry?

A PO did replace the headliner, so ya never know...

I just let it go the way of the dodo. I don't spray water that direction and I don't drive real fast backwards in the rain...

Thanks Ed, I didn't see the first thread in my search, and I like the idea of the open cell foam as that was what the factory used.

I snaked a piece of electrical wire through the opening, then taped the foam to the end of the wire to pull it in.
