1971 safari window seal/gasket
The day I brought my 1971 Safari into a shop to have some work done I noticed I had two leaks. They are centered on the front and rear opening windows. I decided to have the seal around both windows redone and also have the gaskets replaced. I was given two options;
1. Replace the rubber seal on the window. It's my understanding that this is "factory" gasket that runs along the edges of the actual window.
2. Add "bulb seal" to the window frame where the window seats when closed.
Option 1 cost considerably more than option 2. I suspect it's primarily related to labor. I'm interested in getting some input on the pros/cons of each. I suspect the option #1 is the preferred method, given that is "factory". However, I need to weigh the cost/benefit factor of one vs the other.
Unfortunately, I'm in a situation with my job where I don't have loads of free time, nor a good space out of the weather to tackle this and a few other repairs on my own. Puts me in a position of having to open the wallet and pay for other's labor and expertise.
