I recently purchased replacement rubber exterior door seal - waist, but I now find it is not the correct size. As you are UK based, any suggestions as to where I should look would be greatly appreciated. Alpine-West were very helpful but their FBRU5 is not correct for my 1972 model.
In anticipation

Is this the glazing one or the one around the door itself?

Hi bigt80, This is the rubber weather strip along the top of the door that seals the window, shedding water overboard and abuts the chrome trim (actually lies over the edge of the trim). The one on the car appears to be vulcanised to a metal backing and is quite thin as a result.

Ah, yes, OK; we did have kits - that do all 4 windows - including clips, but have run out. I will look to do a re-order, but things a bit hectic currently - if you can hang on a few weeks I will keep you posted. G
