I've used this weatherstrip and it's great! Word of warning: 88U Beige
is off-white and 87W brown is buckskin tan. The latter matched my New
Tan TR6 interior fairly well. I would not use the beige anywhere... it
looked like dirty white.
I'd like to know the rear window weatherstrip if you could find the
number. I have the same issue as the original poster.
