Turn signals Batt Box Leaf Spring Bushings ... ect... SO ... I wonder if any one Has tried to use a Wind shield Gasket off of One of those for Our Vans ??? they say a 65 Chevy trucks are the same ... But I have seen a Lot Of Guys have to cut them to Make em.. Work....... So I wonder if there Close or even a Better fit ???? Has any One here ever tried this ??????? Thanks.......

    my glass guy used a early 80's chevy van gasket on my windshield
    i'm very pleased with how it looks
    have heard others using the same yr pick up with good results
    if it's installed correctly cutting to fit is no biggie for a qualified glass guy
    mine has a -seam- but instead of putting it in the middle top or botom
    of the window he put it on the side
    can barely see it and he said it will less likely to separate or shrink there too
    i dunno but i like mine

    Never tried the tri 5 chevy gasket but i did get the chevy truck 1(64/65) and the glass guy did no mods to it what so ever and it fit fine, and still does!I would get it again if needed.
