In this tech article we will install the roof rail and cowl weatherstripping on a first Gen Camaro. The roof rail weatherstripping starts at the front of the door jamb on the body, goes up the A-pillar, across the roof rail above the door and quarter glass, and ends at the rear bottom of the quarter window. The cowl seal fits across the top of the cowl and seals the hood to the cowl. By replacing these seals, it gives the car a tight feel and cuts down on wind noise.

With the new roof rail weatherstripping and cowl seal, your Camaro will not only look good, but with less wind noise– it will sound great too!

    The cowl weatherstripping is too thick! After I installed it the hood would not close completely? I can hear the air noise coming through when it’s out but would like to be able to have the hood close flush!

    Do you have any catalogs just on the 1988 Z28 Camamro??

      Unfortunately we do not have a catalog on just the 1988 Z28 Camaro. Currently our Camaro catalog covers 1967-current. We’d be happy to send you a catalog if interested, let us know!
