Default Vent Windows

I am finding the Vent Windows to be a major challenge to adjust (mainly the passenger side) on my 67 Camaro. One issue is the rubber that was used. Great kit in every other area of the car, but it's way to bulky for the vent windows to function correctly and it leaves a fairly large gap at the top which results in lot of wind noise.

I am wondering what others have used with success and if there are any good tips on how to adjust the vent window.

Thanks in advance.

I must have done something right. Had a guy in a Tesla giving me the thumbs up this weekend.

That would probably make it quieter... and has nothing to do with wind noise.

Dealing with similar issue on my '68, spend a couple hours adjusting the window last night and cam to the conclusion that the glass was likely sanded down too far in the front or the new weather stripping wasn't molded correctly.

Your car looks great!
