New poster after seal advice

Postby Mark rock » 11 Oct 2018, 17:28

Hi all
First post of many , out of the VW game for the last 10 years or so and have now come round to buying a 1985 autosleeer which is in need of restoration.
So I am in need of window seals after I get round to welding , are there any suppliers round who are cheaper than just kampers? Also need new seals for Windows in high top? and lastly for now the high top is missing the seals where the high top meets the body front and back .
All help and advice greatly appreciated.

Hi mate, the quality of window seals varies a lot. Buy cheap, buy twice. I have replaced all our window seals on our van using seals from Brickwerks and they are high quality and a great fit. I recommend you buy from them..

'Baines rubber seals' in Tunbridge Wells if you are down south' original suppliers to 'Bilbos', great stock and service, and more pliable than some I have tried

And for the high top seals, as they’re not specific VW seals, and the hightop maker may not be able to provide, Seals Direct have a massive selection online

Thanks for the replies all, I should of trawled through forums before posting as wealth of information already there, as for heig top seals I think I may leave them off and once I have cut out and plated rot sikaflex roof to body.
