Soft Top Door Seals Needed

Just removed fiberglass top in preparation of my soon to be received Badger and I need the door seals for a 95 90. I need the seals for both doors, front and back and top front. Any help appreciated.

Are you's in bad condition? If you're getting the gutter kit, just re-use them (unless they are included). If you are getting the FDS top, just cut off your current seals - the soft top ones are just station wagon parts cut at the level of the tub behind the door, and at the top of the windsheild at the front.

No! Do not cut them. The door seals that are used for the soft top have foam plugs stuck in the end of the seal. I don't have any in stock, but can order them.

Sew on.....

I guess I've never seen a genuine one then - can't say I'm surprised! Is there a reason not to just chop them and plug the end with something?

I'm sure something like that could be done. Buying new seals is the proper way to go. The other problem is the issue when the hard top goes back on- producing gaps for water to get in. That is why it is nice to have a 1 piece door seals.

Sew on...........

Thanks for the feedback Jim and Chris. I considered cutting the full door seals used for the hardtop as you mentioned, but not sure if I will ever install the hardtop again and I don't want to buy new seals. I will continue to look for some used seals rather than forking out some obscene amount for new seals. Thanks for the help.
