Window Problems

On my 71 Overlander I have a few window issues. On the weatherstripping issue. I have shrinkage - how do I fix this. Also where can I get the trim piece in the photo. The PO broke one and I need a new one. On the front wing window there is no weatherstripping at all. Do I just use vulcam to repair or do I need something else. Thanks for you input. I know this has nothing to do with windows but do you know where I can get the wheel well trim?

Use vulkem to repair those windows.

To remove wing windows, take them apart, replace the gasket (that's not available), reassemble the wing windows and reinstall them with rivets,is a task that you don't even want to think about.

You can inject some vulkem into the window frame, push the gasket back into place, and tape the gasket so it cannot move allowing the vulkem to cure out, is a good way to go. After you remove the tape, you can add another bead of vulkem over the gaskets, forever sealing them in place.
