RE: [DML] Door roof seal dimensions


The roof seals are molded parts that are curved and tapered towards the
sealing edge. If flat rubber stock would have worked just as well I
certainly would not have invested over $8000- in tooling alone to make new
ones. Once you've removed the rivets the first time you'll swear you'll
never want to do it again as it's not a fun job. At less than $35- each for
a properly designed part isn't your time better spent fixing your car
correctly rather than manufacturing your own parts that may not give you the
intended results? BTW stick with rivets as screws are more likely to dent
the roof with only 1/8" clearance between the two panels.

Hey all,

Can anybody tell me the dimensions of the door roof seals?  They're 
completely gone from my car (only the riveted holders remain).  From 
pictures, they appear to just be 2 long rubber rectangles.  I'm about to 
tear off the roof & headliners & figured I'd roll my own seals & convert 
from rivets to screws while I'm "in the neighborhood".  If someone can send 
me some measurements I promise to write up a 'how to' when I'm done ;)
