Door bottom Weatherstrip Upgrade

This is been the best mod that I have done so far(dollar compared to return). I have been searching the UK Defender forums for quite some time trying to figure out what do do about the door bottom weatherstripping not sealing the door completely, letting in rain, and dust, wind, you know the drill. I upgraded to the weatherstripping put now on the the 2011 and forward Pumas. I just had to drill holes in the sides the door the accept the plastic rivets. It also quited down the exterior sound, and even the AC felt like the cabin has been staying cooler. The Part numbers are:
Front: LR029309
Rear Left:LR029307
Rear Right:LR029308

I got all for less than $100.00 shipped from Rimmer Bothers

Wait, the door bottoms are supposed to be sealed? Won't that trap the water in the truck.

I just did the same on my 110. They are much nicer than the older style seals.

I finally got a chance this weekend to install the new (2011+) door bottom seals. They are clearly superior, but will only work with the current stamped-frame steel doors. If you have the old (original to NAS) welded square frame doors with the aluminum skins then, sorry, these wont work. These are a great upgrade for anyone that bought the new take-off doors that everyone was selling a few years back.

Install is easy, but I took my time and took off the door cards to vacuum out the pieces of rivet, drill swarf, etc. I also shot extra corrosion protection wax into the cavities.

In what way do you believe they won't work on earlier doors? Do the newer doors have the same profile as the old series stlye door frames? The new seals worked great on my '83 110 split doors.

Finally got the pix to load, that should clarify.

How would they work on old style doors? The frame is a different shape with rounded versus squared corners. The new seals are contoured to fit on the new doors. Maybe they'll stretch around the corners on old doors, but I'd be inclined to think that they'd wear faster or not do the sealing they were designed to do. I'd love to see pix.
