I love my Chevy Chevette!

I have a leak on both sides between the door and the removable glass top in the front corner. Is this common and is this usually a weather stripping problem? Also does anyone know how difficult it is to replace the weather stripping? thanks in advance.
V-6 Camaros rule!

there are a bunch of articles already written on this...
there are more on the next few pages of this search also...
i did not check over at corvettefever magazine archives.
and i used several different fixes on a NON Corvette application.. when i had some weather strip surface degrading..
i have used both 3M and permatex black superweatherstrip adhesive as a new surface on the weather strip.. i left the door open for several hours to allow the surface to completely dry.. this is contact cement you understand.. it can stick when dry..
i have used black silicone sealer as a surfacing coating on the weather strip..
i would think that the ultrablack might work also.. but it might be too stiff.. have not tried the ULTRA BLACK personally..
i have some silicone self vulcanaizing tape in black and used the superweatherstrip adhesive to glue that to the surface of the weatherstrip. that car was sold after i performed that service so i don't know how it came out in the long run..
so there are several ways to fix this..
careful stuffing of some hollow sections also made some areas seal better..
