For the doors- roofline-  I used metro and am happy with them. Others have said not to use them for the trunk I think.

Yes.  I like the Metro stuff.  Used it for my doors on my '70 Challenger convertible.  For the trunk though, I used DMT's product.  I read negative comments/reviews about Metro trunk weatherstripping, so I decided on using DMT's.  So far, very happy.  I am a fan of DMT products, and Jim Filmore is a great guy.

Best way to buy it is in a kit...There's lots of companies on EBay competing for your business... http://www.ebay.com/itm/331314103035?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Are you talking about the small 1/4 glass windows?
