Try www.steelerubber.com It is the only place I found that makes not only the front door seals for my car, but also the seals needed for the large rear doors on my limo.

we had a man in california that we were getting the right stuff from. but he stopped ordering it. Rick got the last of his supply. Paul has tried to get some made up and I don't think he has had any success. but do remember to check the vender's portion of this site out I did list him there and if enough people ask maybe we can get him to make a new run. the last set went for about 4 bucks a foot. you'll need about 100 feet to do a car

I'll need a complete set as well so if we're considering a "group buy" please include me. Dean, Paul...does someone want to follow up with the vendor (rather than all of us calling him)?

Bill,

Before we call the vendor, let's see how many others are interested. I will post thread under General Discussion to see if we can generate some interest.

Default Door Weatherstripping

Dear Forum administrator, If you could please retain to the discussion Ed's picture from Kar Rubber of the cross section cut away, I would really appreciate it.The photo being acessible to everyone serves as a reference if any body needs to compare what they have in their coach's and when inquiry with vendors it makes it easy to send. It was very helpful to me personally, after looking at illustrations of rubber door seals cross sections today, a photo is more better! A BIG THANKS1 TO JEREMY AND PAUL FOR ORIGINATING THIS DISCUSSION FOR IF NOT FOR THEM I WOULD OF NOT LAID ON MY BACK AND ACTUALLY REALIZED IN WHAT CONDITION MY DOOR SEALS ARE IN ALONG THE BOTTOMS OF MY DOORS. Twisted, dry cracked, hanging loose, I can't believe I missed it, but all the other sides of the door seal that you can actually see from the regular line of sight standing upright, are alot better condition just collapsed and displaced, but truthfully I knew it was that bad and I just didn't want to deal with it. It is a valuable detail and performance component of our coach if installed effectively. Saves energy in the summer if you don't have to run your A.C as hard because your not getting it sucked out from between your leaking seals. Ultimately your gas mileage goes up to. So my opinion, money well spent.

Default Door Weatherstripping

I am going to get in contact with Mike Hinshaw this week from Metro Moulded Rubber for an update for members on the door weather stripping. I know Ed sent a sample per my request to Metro Moulded Rubber and uncertain if Jeremy sent a sample. Doing my best without being a bully with these people. Thanks Members! For your patience and understanding.
