1966 Window Anti-Rattle Question

Looking for recommendation. I have used the DC Window Anti-Rattle (Part # C1TZ-8121452-A) and am not happy with them as I need more. Either lack of knowledge on installation or that's the way it is with the clips not holding. I actually have one out of 4 strips hold to the door without getting ruined.So, before ordering more from DC, anyone order these from Steelrubber.com? Part #80-0171-57. Bit more expensive but looks like better clips.

I got mine from rockauto. Less than $45 Not familiar with other suppliers, but no real complaints other than they only have them in black.

Thanks, I'm looking for the chrome look. Was that $45 for one door or for both doors?

James, How did these work for you with the clips holding? They are not just reselling DC ones are they?

Did you make sure the slots in the door that the clips go in were in good condition. If they are broken or deformed the clips won't hold. I had to rework several of those slots in my doors. But I used DC parts and they snapped right in using a wooden window wedge to push on them.

Al: No personal experience with them myself, but I saw mention of them somewhere in this build thread:

https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...ld-thread.html

And they are a manufacturer, so, NO, they are not a reseller of DC stuff. And I believe that the truck in the build thread has been completed for several years now, so you could always PM the OP & ask if he still endorses Precision's products?

I believe the originals were made of SS, were they not? I say this because one of the links above said they were chrome. ..

The originals were all black. No stainless or chrome on them. Didn't matter if it was Standard or Custom Cab, either way same anti-rattlers.

The chrome/stainless bead is only on the reproductions. I have a few NOS of one but none of the other.

Thanks all. I will rework the door slots some more. and probably will have to rework some of the clips. All the slots are good, none broken. I also used a wood paddle (paint stick) to get them seated. The issue was some of the clips held and a few would not hold no matter what I did. I'll order another set and cross my fingers. I'll get it done one way or another. Thanks again guys!
