Trying to install weather stripping

I have been trying to install weather stripping. I ordered factor weather strip for my 67 ford F-100. This truck has been chopped with some other body modes. The factor strip is to tight (Large) at the bottom of the door, but needs to be a little larger at the top of the door. When the truck was new it had a drip rail, and the top of the door was inset. Now the drip rails have been shaved, and the door has been made flush with the outside. This has created a larger gap at the top (inside) than the bottom of the door (inside).

Has anyone had to deal with this problem in the past, and how did it get handled. The door in aligned where it needs to be. I just need to fill in the gap so everything will tie together.

Please help with ideas.

got any pics of it i have never seen a chopped 67-72 ford truck my first vehicle ever was a 69 f100 pickup when i was 16 i learned so much about wrenching with it replaced virtually everything including clutch and 240 cylinder head and replaced the three on the tree column with one from another truck and reconnected it to the 3 speed like stock because someone converted it to flooor shift, put split headers on it and so on.

so if the doors are set correct height and the stock style weatherstripping wont fit then it sounds like some customization is gonna need to be done to the weatherstripping or some other stripping is going to be needed hmm.. pics of the problem areas ?

good luck!
