Coupe door seals
« on: February 16, 2016, 06:48:14 AM »
Silly me, I ordered the Vicky Brit door seals. I can deal with not the original design, but the seal they supply will not work. So I searched the archives and found MacGregor in Canada as a potential source, but his website is devoid of any Wedge door seals. I didn't find any messages in the archive closing the loop on the MacGregor seals, did they work? Is he still supplying them?



I see TRF has a door seal listed, but at almost $100 a side I wanted see if anybody has any feedback before I order them.



Thanks!



Henry

MacGregor is old school. You'll have to call them, but their seals are the

cats pajamas.

I made the same mistake buying the VB seals. Not only are they not correct but

didn't even seal the door opening. I had to fight them to make a return and

get my money back.

I just ordered a set of FHC door, window channel, & bonnet seals from

Martin (MacGregor). I have not installed them yet. Martin is very

friendly to chat with, he takes Visa but not Mastercard, all the seals

come in a roll, so you have to join them - but that means THERE ARE NO

KINKS in them!! The prices on his web site are a little out of date.



Highly recommended.



Cheers

Didn't know about the school of Rock thing but guess you figured out I like

really old movies and literature.

I may be showing my age but to me School of Rock is not an old movie.  But Cat's pajamas certainly dates back to the 30"s.

Yeah I was referring to the 30s.

Any chance that McGregor or TRF have the heat sealed joint in the corner ?

So you are referring to The Thin Man, Key Largo, or Citizen Kane.  (there were some clunkers back then, too.)

The FHC door seals from MacGregor are not joined - the material is

neatly rolled with no lumps or kinks. Once the join is made, it is

impossible to fold or coil the seal without putting folds or wrinkles in

the seal. IIRCC he recommends Lok-tite instant glue.



I have yet to see a factory joined door seal that was long enough and

did not require splicing a 1 or 2" section into it, so this is a perfect

way to make sure your seal will actually fit!

Does MacGregor provide enough material,  how much is usually left on the roll

after cutting to size?

Thanks for the input, guys. I had a nice chat with Martin and scored what I needed.



I got the sales pitch, apparently (as someone here already said) the web site  is seriously out of date, he can supply lots more than is listed on there. Also, worth noting the US dollar is really strong right now against the Canadian dollar, it will be interesting to see what I end up actually paying.



Cheers
