Phantom part.

PostPost by: persiflage » Mon Jun 15, 2020 9:17 am

I spent some time yesterday going through the boxes of parts removed at the start of the rebuild a lifetime ago.
Does anybody recognise these parts?
The aluminium strip has obviously been used to clamp the rubber strip but I can't remember where. In the back of my mind I seem to remember it was something to do with the doors,, can anybody confirm?

Called secondary door seals, in case you need to go searching for them.

:D so my old brain wasn't playing tricks on me.
Having searched the archives I was a little disappointed at the lack of clear pictures but that last one tells the story perfectly. Thanks for the feedback gents.
