Hey guys,
I received my set of inner and outer dew wipes today. The quality is just fabulous! A very happy customer of member "Saejai". I believe these wipes will still be doing their thing 50 years from now when the windows will have long stopped working!!

A happy customer!

Weather is warming up......come on spring! As of 3/11/2024, current inventory is 9 pair outers and 6 inners. Will be bringing these to the MFF meeting on Monday too so all the local Minnesotan's who need dews bring you money and avoid the shipping cost. The next round of parts should be here on Thursday to build another 15 pair of outers.

Monday bump. Got another set headed to Florida today

Just wanted to mention, I have received a few PM's over the last couple weeks inquiring if the dew wipes are still available, I currently have both inners and outers in stock with parts on hand to build more. Also, I order parts to build more whenever my inventory gets low. So I will continue to stock these for the foreseeable future. I will also update my 1st post weekly with inventory and other info so if there is a current date and inventory you can be assured I have them ready to ship.

If you would like dew wipes but do not have PayPal, I will also take a money order or cashiers check for payment. Just PM me for my address.

PM sent, I just dropped my payment in the mail. Hopefully I will see these in about 7-10 days. That way I can get them installed while on vacation.

Inner and Outer dew wipes now available!

+The outer dew wipes are made using top quality "Made In USA" rigid weatherstrip material. The metal guide tabs are covered with a good quality flock window guide felt. The center guide blocks are OEM style with a rigid polypropylene pile lining. All parts are attached using the proper rivets so the dew will sit flat against the door.

Outer dew wipes will fit all years and models. Early 84's used a different dew wipe and will require a round filler piece to fill the gap between the dew wipe and the door skin. The pic at the bottom shows the difference.

+The Inner dew wipes are a modified part from a different GM vehicle. The design of these mean they will fit tightly on the door pinch weld.

Pricing:
Outers are $95 shipped in the US and $118 shipped to Canada.
A set of Inners and Outers are $125 shipped in the US and $148 to Canada.
Inners alone are $40 shipped US, and $63 Canada

As of Saturday May 10th 2014
I am currently out of stock on outers. I have parts on hand to build another 15 sets. These are shipped priority mail via the US postal service which is usually a 2 or 3 day delivery time depending on where you live. I will always ship within 24 hours of receipt of payment, except on Sunday when the post office is closed.

OUTERS:


New felt guide block installed. This pic also shows the good quality of the flocking on the weatherstrip.





New brackets with the proper rivets





Here is an end view pic showing the metal core with the proper bends to make the dew wipe rigid.


INNERS:



Installed on the door:



Retainer and door panel installed:



Here is a pic of the 1st design 84 dew wipe compared to a new one:

Finally installed my dew wipes that I received a few months ago. Took me two evenings after getting home from work (one for each door). Buddy Craig on Youtube has a video series showing how to do this. I'm very, very happy with these wipes.

I'll post photos eventually. I've been in a big rush to get my car ready for a show on Sunday.

Notes & Tips:


  • I tried to lift the window as some folks suggested, thus avoiding Rodney's tool. Didn't work. However, I seem to have somehow damaged my passenger window's mechanism while trying. It is very loud now. Just use Rodney's tool.
  • The centre hole is round, the outer four are oval. Do the round one first, or you'll give yourself a headache. I didn't notice right away...
  • When installing the outer dew wipes, the inners are off the car. At this point, the window doesn't move up/down straight. When the window is up, there is more room to maneuver rodney's tool into place, while it's easier to actually use the tool with the window is down. Some careful contortions (or a helper) allow you to move the windows while holding the tool in place.



Tools. I'd recommend having these before starting, saving yourself a trip to the store.


  • Rodney Dickman's tool
  • Telescoping magnet. You'll very likely drop a screw down the door. If you have a helper, they can hold the magnet near the screw as you're removing it, to catch it before it falls.
  • Door panel removal tool. I had this one, but I think this set looks better. The tool in the top-right is much better suited to prying the pegs out.
  • Utility knife. Buddy Craig has you cut away some of the old wipes. It's much easier to use Rodney's tool after doing this, as my old wipes didn't flex at all. Don't cut the new wipes
  • PB Blaster/similar penetrant. Two screws were stuck. Of course it's two you need Rodney's tool for, and can't get leverage on...

Glad to see you got them installed and that you are happy with them. Thank you for the positive review.

As you pointed out, it is important to start with the center screw. This hole is round and is what indexes the dew in the correct position on the door and must be done first. Also a wooden wedge pushed between Rodney's dew wipe tool and the window glass can help put a little extra pressure on the tool to keep it from slipping on the screw. Another trick is to use a needle nose pliers to grab on to the threaded portion of the screw when it is almost out to avoid dropping it into the door. (I have used this trick with 5 sets I have done and it works great.)
