i know this has been beat to death but i cant find the posts for it. my painter tore up the side door, forward, one door rubber. it was brand new from the northwest . he just pulled it off. gone. i keep the van in the garage all winter and during any rain but when i go camping i get soaked. looking for a replacement or even the correct kind that i can glue in place. i am at a loss cause i dont know anything about it. thanks and sorry again for posting an old problem. Bill McIntosh. i am now in west virginia so there are no junk yards to raid. missing carolina and all the yards.
The rear side door is different on the lower rear corner only, angles instead of squared off. I have used newer gaskets on the older doors with repositioning some of the clips and shortening the length a little. In a nut shell, cut a little out of that corner.
I see a couple of the manufacturers list the seals for that year as "Out of Stock", have you contacted them to see if they are planning on producing more. Also, has anybody ever used the 71-77 years on the 78 and newer years. I do know most of the weatherstrip made for the Mids nowadays has a thicker bulb and generally the doors are tough to close after installation. A salvage or wrecking yard would probably be the best chance of finding some at a good price.
