Were the metal angle L brackets at the ends of the weatherstrip natural, cad, painted, etc? I have I believe original ones with an A over an S stamped on the backs, between the "U" shaped holes. Thanks in advance.

I happen to have mine off the car at the moment while my car is being painted so I had a look and there is an A stamped over an S, never noticed that before (never looked either)  Chug a Lug

Maybe it's an S with an A? Now what could that stand for?

Thanks - thats what I have. 

The weather strip that I have is quite (duh) old and I was thinking about the S & A markings but did not want to take it off in fear of damaging the strip.

I found a AS automotive spring corporation in my Wards MFG yearbook but the trademark looks different so I doubt think that is it. Frustration
