[DML] Re: Door Roof Seal (Looking for Delorean Center option)



This is what I did when I replaced mine, I got a bunch of small screws and used a Dremel to cut them down. That was the easy part; the hardest part was to drill out all the old rivets, remove the old rubber and metal, and then cut the rivets down again to make them small enough to pop inside the roof and away from the holes. I drove around for about a year without any roof seals before I put new ones in; you may want to begin removing yours now and get that task out of the way, that way when you get the new ones you can just pop them in and be done. -----Dani B. #5003

I called DMC in California (AKA Delorean Center) and they advised they do not carry this anymore.  I like the screws vs rivots option and the fact that the seal already comes attached to a new metal piece.
