Hi Graham,Hi Nick,
I've been looking for decent door seals but there isn't much choice. It's a common misconception that COH Baines supplied the original door seals but they didn't, they were made by a now defunct German company.
Lotus Elan owners suffer from the same lack of seals.
Thanks Brian, big problem is that is only for 1 to 3mm panels, I had a few samples off them and their DX75 was perfect for my 5mm panel, but the bulb is only 13mm.Hi Nick,
Have a look at COH Baines item DX 73.
Thanks Ian.I remembered this thread.
Ok I am sad and have no life, but a good memory!
Thanks Andy, may well have to resort to that but want to avoid it if I can.Hi Nick,
I would grind the edge of the panel until the seal fits, a bit messy but easier to use a standard seal.
Andy, would love to buy from a proper job, West Country firm, used to go through Cullompton everyday for a few years on my way to Tiverton Technical College. Totally irrelevant but it shows there is more than one, Ian Anderson sad middle aged no life man out thereHi Nick
Try this company, phoenix trim supplies, hope they have what you are looking for, Andy
I used seal profile ETS60 from Seals Direct, which is also sold by CBS under part number TRMDRL. As it is not a bulb seal, I found it more compliant and easier to use, as it was not trying to lift the door, as the sealing part of the seal takes up less space when compressed.
I still think you’ll have to grind down the thickness of the edge, but probably not all the way to 3mm, as the design specification
Sounds like a challengeNick
Unless you have serious anti lift devices on your doors at 70 mph you will have half an inch of air between your spider and door!
A lot of rain came through that bit when I started driving my car years back and before I had them fitted.
After that It is mainly dry with the odd drip, wet on door Windows and opening flaps, very wet with spray from front tyres coming around hinge of door and decidedly damp water coming under the bottom of the door and soaking the sill carpets, only to be sat on later and causing damp bum syndrome!
On the way down to LMC 2008 it was torrential rain for about 200km
All the GT40s needed bailed/sponged out on arrival at Le Mans
None were watertight
