You guys that have replaced the weatherstrip rails, how well did they fit? My car is a 64, at this point I’ve ordered a few pieces of sheet metal for it and I’m leaning towards they all come from a place in Taiwan. The rails I ordered were off of eBay and Dynacorn brand. The 90* bend that is supposed to hold the weatherstrip is more of a 15* bend. After trying another set which was the same, I think I’ll just have a lot of hammer and dolly work to get it shaped right. The eBay store was very helpful but so believe it’s out of their control unless I try a different seller.

Ha, not sure how to respond to the name, but I hear you on the fitment issue. They are pretty much all stamped from the same mold I think, I may be wrong, but I've yet to hear someone say 'oh wow it fit great without any modification at all'.
I re-did the tail pan and floor sections in my '65 and the tight corners on the bottom left and right were the worst.
I did end up fabricating my own using pieces of the removed trunk panels, using V cuts to contour the corners, and the right hammers and dollys you can do just about anything.
Oh yes....and patience, lots of patience. LOL
