I've seen that you can get window felt with or without the chrome bead. Is the chrome bead version purely for aesthetics and original styling or does it serve a purpose?

I see a lot of conversations on where to get a good product, but none on why I should or shouldn't want the bead.

I've got a soffseal weatherstrip kit ordered, but I don't know if it cones with felts or not.

Thanks

I believe it to be just vehicle correct on a original restore project. The bead does not serve a specific purpose. It does look better though.

Cosmetic only, in my opinion.
Just depends whether or not you want the chrome.

Though... I think all 4-doors got chrome. I could be mistaken, but that seems right.

Well, I was leaning away from chrome bead, but this weatherstriping kit I ordered from soffseal unexpectedly came with window felts and they have chrome so unless they are a bad fit I suppose that's the way I'm going. Hopefully PUI window felts don't suck.
