More Advice I'm afraid...

PostPost by: Elan Peter » Tue Jun 11, 2019 11:19 am

Hello all. Does anybody know where I can buy those furry strips that go around the windows for my s2?
People may ask why I'm bothering when I'm building a race car for the road, simple answer = I live in Wales, it rains, a lot, almost all the time... :lol: So there is my reasoning if needed and as I will be doing the odd hill climb, it made sense to fit the full weather seals.
Best regards, P

Yes, Sue Miller had them, plus new clips (this was about a year ago when I re- cabled the electric window mechanism). They need cutting to correct length.

I think they are also available from Woolies. You'll have to check the dimensions with them.

Thank you everyone, this is very helpful.
I would also like to know where I can get the seal that goes between the windscreen frame and the body? That would also be helpful.

The seal that goes between the windscreen frame and body is available from Paul Matty. Probably available from others as well.

Ideal, thanks Paul.
I would PM for advice but my PM doesn't work anymore, I can receive but cannot send.
