Has anyone compared door weatherstrip seals from Vintrage Rubber and Precision side by side.


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I used the VR kit when the car was restored and the drivers side door closes fine but the passenger side is a pita, and I have adjusted the hinges, latch etc for ages but that door simply won't sit properly.  The car has never been hit and if I pull the seal it closes perfectly.  Has anyone compare the width of the VR and Preciosion seals side by side?  I'm hoping the Precision one is a bit thinner.  I've searched for any NOS but no go, any feedback would be great.

I've ordered the Precison seal, and will revert back with how it compares to the VR.  I like how the door fits now but I could do some adjustments to the window frame in the meantime time.  Cheers

A little something I wrote up a while back. In my and many other's experience, the Precision stuff is not ideal, and evidently, neither is Vintage Rubber. McMaster-Carr makes weatherstripping that's comparatively easy to install, keeps water out well, and allows the door to close properly. Info's in the linked post. Hope this helps.
