Sweet! I need the rear seals redone worse than anything on my van right now! Those look nice! How did they end up fitting? Did they get a bill of approval?

Good! My van is a fair weather beast currently with only old front door seals installed (yeah, I didn't do all of the front door seal install yet. Got the window beltline stuff installed, was pretty quick smile )

I just received this from Mike at Metro when I went fishing for an update:

"We are working on revising the rear door seals and hope to have them ready in the spring. We then will work on the side cargo door seals—they will take less time as they seem to use several of the same components. Thanks for your interest."

Time to resurrect this old thread with some good news. I just received this from Mike at Metro;

Richard,



At long last, we have finalized our rear cargo door seals—p/n’s LM 123-VA (left) and LM 123-VB (right). I will send you a set of the finalized prototypes next week.



I expect releasing them by month’s end with product availability in December. We will pivot to the side cargo door seals now. They will not take near as much time to develop since they use all of the same elements the rear seals do.



I would appreciate it if you could post something on your forums to inform your fellow enthusiasts about this updated info.



Thanks for your patience and assistance.



Best regards,



Mike Hinshaw

Metro Moulded Parts

So now they are working on the side barn door seals and should soon follow.

Richard
