Default I do not know ...........

Hello to the community,

on my 61 T-Bird I did in the last 2 years a lot or restoration, now I have nearly everything together. But in one position I really do not know and ask for help.

Does anybody know for what these three wholes are for.

Thanks for help

There is weatherstripping that goes in that location and is held in place with three screws.

Hello John,

thanks for that information.
I bought a full set of weatherstrips but do not have one would fit in this position.

Can anybody post a picture from the original construction at that position?

Thanks for reply

I don't have a close-up of it but here's a general idea of what it looks like. I believe it extends down from where the windshield meets the vent window. I think it's called the A pillar post seal. It's possible the repro seal doesn't extend as far as the factory seal.
