Could I ask where the door seals come from? I have not found witch seals that where used.

Hi Rune
The original "S" weatherstrip is extremely rare.

Luckily we were given the rubber seal by a good friend "P" who got extruder dies made using a section of the original strip and he manufactured a batch of the rubber for a few original restorations in the US.

I located a local supply of correct steel gripper and the black fabric for him so one of the next jobs is to stitch it all together.
I also purchased a Singer 29K cobbler's sewing machine just to do the job as I discovered it's tough going doing it by hand.

This plague has buggered us up in many ways and one of them is my inability to get across England to Kent to do anything on my car for a year as I am one of the susceptible ones.
During this outage I have been making the dash in isolation with my own jigs and this morning Alistair left me a message "I need to call you".
OH NO !

Well to our surprise the bloomin' thing slipped in first time.:);)
