Softseal is the way to go. I have a 76 Camaro that I have owned for 22 years, and all weatherstripping has been replaced with softseal.

just received today my soffseal, rubber is not the best quality and nylon spin can be out of the hole too easily :-( anyway a good alternative to GM replacement too expensive.

How bad are your old ones? I had a beater 84' that i wasn't about to invest hundreds of dollars to get new seals for, a friend recommended that i tried cleaning and treating the old seals with KY jelly. Sounds silly but worked great, i guess since they lubed them it sealed better. hadn't had a leak since.

i planned on taking off my seals and just laying silicone everywhere i could.

Be careful when you do that because thats how i got the car, the tops were actually siliconed in place, this actually worked against sealing them because who ever did this filled in the channels that are designed to carry water away from the tops so the water just sat there, which eventually when the silicone seperated from the body a little and water got down through it just stayed there and rusted away parts of the t-bar and leaked into the interior. Try to keep the silicone under the weatherstripping and just maybe some in the corners, try not to obstruct the flow of water away from the tops.
