Hi, gang I am looking to find a Convertable boot cover for my 89 Z24. Any help would be appreciated. Also any leads to finding door glass window weather stripping would be great
Thanks in advance.

What color are you needing?
They can be dyed with great results, if the proper dye is used.

This was posted years ago, but maybe he still has it.

A member at v6 had a tan one for sale, but it too was years ago.

Here is another gentleman that had a few, years ago. I got one of mine from him in 2014. He still has some parts, I believe. I've bought a few things from him off and on since then. Chances are he does still have a boot or two left, maybe.

His name is Terry. Tell him Butch sent you. I don't make anything off any deals. I've just always told him I'd let people know, should I see someone wanting something he may still have. He's a good honest man.

If none of those work out, try a nation wide craigslist search. I recall seeing them once in a great while. In fact there was a gray and white one listed a year ago in Pasco county FL, (I posted them in this board back then).
When I saw that CL listing, I thought mine had been stolen

The "dew wipes"/window weatherstripping was discontinued long ago by GM. I ordered a set back around 2002 and they were hard to come by then. The stripping itself wasn't sold, it also included the black metal trim the stripping is attached to. The models for the convertibles were specific to the convertibles. Your only option would be to find a similar rubber strip manufactured in bulk and mount it to your existing trim.

Used that to convert a white one to black years ago. Looked flawless.

Yeap, I used Sem for the dash I put in my wagon. It is wonderful.
Here is the stuff I used for it:

As for the OP's question about the belt strips. Here is a post with info on replacing them and where to buy new strips.
