Fortunately I have a brand new NOS set as posted before that I found in my garage.. I was looking to install them soon in like a week..but in thinking to benefit the forum and many owners before I install them.. are there any manufacturers like Rodney Dickman or others that would be able to use my set to replicate the seals and reproduce them for all the other T-Top owners or would that be out of reach?

I think this was tried and the cost was too high. You may want to search the forum for more info.

Are the seals the 88 CJB type or the non CJB found on 87s and earlier?

I believe its the CJB type from the 1988s.. my fiero gt is an 1988 CJB..

This seal has the headliner lock integrated into the seal and it also has a deflector for the door glass... which im pretty sure was only on the CJB coded cars... anybody have any pictures to decipher the two? any other areas to point out?

I thought that Rodney had said he was going to look into it a few months back? Talk to him, maybe? Maybe we should all do a mass mailing to Steele?

This is another prime reason this is a great forum,
I don't have and never had a TTop...but your offer of the seals to someone as an example for reproducing them is classy----
