With some of this van resto parts it's hard to buy twice if there is only one supplier for the part you need AND they have it in stock the time you need it. There matbe only one manufacturer of the rubber being sold by multiple venders names. The rubber seals I bought are very soft, just like I get for the ho rods from Steele Rubber. Please send me a PM if you know of the where abouts of better rubber. Thanks!

Guess I need a crash course in reading retention, to many projects pulling different direction!
No-Spark already said Soft Seal won't be available till March and their web site confirms "out of stock".
Checking with Steele Rubber looks like front door seals only available in kit form which would include rubber I don't need. Will call them tomorrow. Used to have their 1" thick catalog but lent it out years ago and never got it back!

Just got off the phone with Steele Rubber, they do not make the rubber "in house" and get it only in kit form which is all 5-6 doors. I only need right front, left front for a '73-'78, if someone wanted to go in with me on the slider & rear doors OR barn doors side & rear I would order the kit.
Any takers?

I have several boxes of later model mouldings. I buy even if I don't need..sorta a hoarder pack rat thing but when you deal with vans and not muscle cars you have too. As much as I hated too i put straight 1984 front doors on my 73 because I got them for $50 a pair,I have double weatherstrip because I forgot I ordered some last year..lol.also ordered rear door and slider.


When in doubt..get the sawzall out..
