Default Who Needs Door Weatherstripping

Looking for all those who might be interested in purchasing door weatherstripping for early 70's CaDILLAC COACHES OR AMBULANCES BEFORE I APPROACH THE VENDOR TO SEE IF THEY WILL PRODUCE MORE. See Ed's response to the posting at [URL="http://www.professionalcarsociety.org/forums/showthread.php?t=3913"]

I spoke to a manufacturer, and they said that they needed at least 1500 feet ordered to make it worth while for them to do a run of rubber. I didn't pursue it any further, since I wasn't able to find 15 people to commit to buying 100 feet. If I can find enough people to do this, I will move forward with the project.. Here is the post from November 2009. Paul

I would be in for enough to do all 5 doors on my 71 Superior, how ever many feet that may be.

As previously stated, I'm in for at least 100'. Ed...you stated 100' is enough for a single vehicle...does that leave much room for error?

100 feet will let you mess up one door. I have started putting them on with weld wood contack cement. find it works better them the 3m stuff. on Roberts I ended up sewing the courners to keep them in tack. Jims I used the tire patch cement on the courners. that worked good. so making a butt splice on a straght run is Ok to. I used the 3m yellow on the 73 and setting out in the sun it rolled off over the winter. left a big mess to clean up and redo. the weld wood so far is sticking good. just have you some moving air when you use it and do not light anything near it.

If this material works for both Miller-Meteor and Superior, I'm in for 200ft which sounds like enough to do 2 cars: my '75 M-M and '72 Superior.

Default Me too.

If it will work on a '72 Pontiac Superior Ambulance, I'll need enough for one as well.

Thanks.
