Default Door Weatherstrip

I have a 1939 Deluxe Tudor. I am ready to replace all the seals between the door and body. I have read of misfiting seals when performing this replacement on this forum. I am looking for recent, good experience with vendors parts fitting as expected. I am currently looking at Steele, DC and MACs; but would welcome other suggestions.

Although I can't tell you about 39 stuff, any product I've received from Steele has been good...they have great customer service too.

Not recent but, my weather strip from BOB Drake has been on the car since 1978. No problems. Fit is excellent.

Have had very good luck with Bob Drake's door weather striping on my '39 Deluxe Fordor.

Be sure to apply the weatherstrip cement to the weather stripping,not the door jamb.
Avoids a mess.

Good tip 19Forty. I didn't know, and will make sure I do that when replacing my weatherstripping.
