Door Seals (Not sea lions!)


Recommended Posts


So the re-painting my wife's SIII with a 90 bulkhead continues. This weekend we stripped off all the capping's and windscreen frame to blasts and send for re galvanising. The door seals are shot - a mix of chopped up defender ones and SIII on the windscreen and roof.

Replacement SIII seals are eye wateringly expensive. Many have said about using Defender seals - some say to grind off the lip others say not needed. My concern (and I am not near the windscreen frame for the rest of this week to check) is how the defender seal would fit to the windscreen frame? The series one rivets on. This thread - 

 - shows the defender seal on the windscreen but no talk about how it fits (or doesn't). Oscar03 has not visited the forum for quite some time otherwise I would ping him.

Can anyone tell me how the defender seal fits to the windscreen frame please? I really do not want to be grinding down the windscreen frame.

Many thanks,
