Window fuzzy stuff

Can anyone tell me where I might be able to find some of the fuzzy stuff that goes in the windows of a 72 Overlander? I have submitted a picture of the kind I took out. It has all dry rotted and I havent been able to find it.

Thanks,
Tammy

fuzzy stuff

It's called appropriately enough "Fuzzy Screen Seal" You will need 1 10" piece on each side of your lift arm opening, total of 40" per screen, when you install it you put the rolled sewn edges out and the fuzzy side to the center of the opening and after it's glued in place pull out one row of thread to make a nice "mouse whisker" effect.

Interesting stuff! Our vintage doesn't have anything quite so "high tech" as fuzzy screen seal! Just aluminum frames! Post a picture of what it looks like in the window area. Always like to learn new stuff! Actually if you do before, during repair, and after it might be a nice link for others when they are looking!

Good luck with your project!

Janet, Thanks for the links, I have looked on those sites. I actually ordered some from the vintage supply but it was the wrong one. I have it if anyone needs that kind. I will post a picture of it later today.

there also is a stick on plastic strip with fuzzy liner thing, that goes on the inside of the arm area of the windows, and keeps out the little critters. Forget what its called, but I can tell you it is hard as heck to get off.

Fuzzy Window Seal

Here is a picture of the kind I have. I have 12 to 15 feet. They call it pile weather stripping. I also attached a picture of the old kind in the window.
I paid 9.89 that includes shipping. I will send the invoice with it.

Update on the fuzzy stuff. I still havent been able to find the kind I need. I had actually thought about gluing some pipe cleaners in there. They look like they would work and they are nice and white!!! Or any other color you can imagine. Just a rambling thought.

hi newbie2006...

the product you need is available at the factory store...i saw it there last week.

any dealer can order it but IF they will or not is another issue....

why not call jackson center tomorrow and buy a whole bunch of 'em...

i don't have the part number at hand but it is in the service manuals and parts listings...

airstream.com has some of the parts/owner books on line and it will be in all of the ones with that style window....like the classics.

cheers

I have a 69 and looked for months to find the fuzzy seal you are talking about...........I called Inland RV and he said they carry a fuzzy seal which is in a plactic frame and you just attached it over the slot or opening....it runs about $8.75 per fuzzy seal which is a bit expensive for all that you will need. I just said, to heck with it and ordered (14) and will paint silver and attach on the inside of the screen frame....which due to the thickness, will not go between the screen and the frame, so don't bother and try it....if you locate the fuzzy seal stuff, let me know, would appreciate it............
