Type door seals into the page search engine and it comes up with a hundred pages of people whining about Rare Spares.  I am wanting to replace the seals that cover the holes on the inside of the doors behind the trims. The original fabric is like a thin canvas, or maybe calico with a waterproofing membrane on one side. I don't suppose anything like this is still available anywhere??? Steve at Cools Trim didn't have any idea.

It does look like some sort of cloth Laurie. You might be able to use vinyl like this dude:

Hi Laurie. If you are looking for originality is it possible that it was used at the time in the US cars? Maybe a possibility. I used the plastic and butyl. Cheers Ron

I will try Daleys.

I was getting close in the states Clay. I found ones made of paper, foam and plastic, but no cloth ones yet.

I know I won't have the time to get this car concourse before Phillip Island Byron, but the closer the better.

I will have a look when I come down to Perth on Thursday Albert. I haven't had any luck elsewhere, so I am thinking of buying calico and painting one side of it with this.

It's just that the original had a rubberised backing on them. (facing the outside)
