Hello all,
Not sure if I had posted something on this before, but I have now done all of the preliminary investigations in having the rear screen seal & possibly the rear quarter window seal (same profile) reproduced.
It would have to be one type only, so the one that takes the insert rather than the moulding; (sorry you early car owners!) still I would think keeping the water out is the main thing.
I really need to have half a dozen firm orders before committing to the spend, so could all you Fastback folks out there let me know if you would be interested? You'll probably need a price to help you in your decision? Well to members, I'd hope we could do them at c.£50 for the rear screen seal and c.£50 the pair for the rear quarters.
Please could you post up your interest, or send me a mail.
Many thanks. G.

I would like the back one too. The side still has the original chrome on. Not that I get dampness in, but it is better to have such spares when they are needed.

Best greetings from the Isle of Arran in Scotland.

Thanks for adding in there Jason. I hope now that I will be able to set things in motion. It's a pity we can only do one profile type (the later one) but I think more cars have the insert than the moulding. I've already got some good quality new insert to go with the seal when made. Cheers all. G

Probably well missed the boat here but any chance of buying a seal set?

What's all this 'later type' business? Would it fit a 1969 model?

Lots of questions...

Thanks,

Mike

later type if from 1972 i think,

i know my 1970 still sports the earlier type - you can tell from the trim,
*early rubbers have the larger stainless trim
*later rubbers have the chrome plastic insert.
