    Default Bendy door seal DONE!!!

    Ive had my vec from new & never got round to solving the wobbly door seal effect till today!! & now they look loaaaaads better!,

    I had some plastic window frame spacers in the garage so snapped them in half used 4 pieces, wrapped them in tape & inserted 2 lots in the areas that dipped (leaving a space enough for the seal to sit back in along side the metal sill) & just push door seal back in place, Really does look a 1000% better & will get better when the seals settle to the new shape .

    I've never even noticed a problem with wobbly door seals until now, but you're right, it looks much neater.

    I noticed it virtually from new but never thought about solving it until i was at a loose end today, They just bow down due to being no support between the clips that hold it down, So easy to do just tight getting the seals up but done it carefully.

    Me too!, damn things have drove me nuts but didn't want to disturb anything, Don't know why i left it so long, I used some rags to protect plastic's & paint just in-case i slipped, But a flat piece of metal or a flat file to prise the seal up form the inside underneath edge got them up, they were to tight to pull by hand).

    Yup, know what you mean. One of the benefits of an enthusiast having owned the car from new I'd say.
