  • Door striping

    Below is a photo of where I just removed the old door stripping. It was hard and rotted. I thought it was time to replace it but....didn't find anything like that on Snyders so I was thinking, was there such a strip for weather/sound proofing or was this a previous owners addition? The stripping was only along the door edge, not the bottom or upper edges.

    Someone added the rubber strip. Now you'll have to touch up the paint.

      Got a whole quart of touch up leftover from Larry restoring the firewall. Perfect match.........

        I had plans on replacing it since it was so dried out, it was no longer helping with the driver's side rattle. Just was wondering why it wasn't offered at Snyders.

        Thanks all.............

          Suppliers offer "D" shaped, hollow, self sticking weatherstripping, in 2 widths. I used it on Minerva & it made the doors QUIET & shut out the COLD air! You hardly notice it's there! It's in their catalogs, but kinda' hard to locate.

        Picked some cushion stuff up today, it's on, I will know later if it works, I'm sure it will. Far more serviceable than what was on there. Not like what came off but looks better. I know she'll have points deducted at the next judging but..............she doesn't care!!! ;)

            More like rubber insulation stripping, a bit more sturdy.

              If you use it, you'll THANK me for makin' your car SO quiet & warmer!! You can use the wider size, on the bottom of your doors.
              On Minerva, my '30 Coupe, I also stapled an old blanket across the rear side of the seat, to keep COLD air from the trunk, from coming in around the sides of the backrest!

                  Yo!! Bill...what I applied did real well, I was amazed that all the clatter and thumps were coming from the doors. I thought it was the body coming loose from the frame but...I'm going to replace it with your suggestion anyway, can't hurt, only improve...IMO.
