Yeah mine was rusty but it sealed up ok.

Safari Rover usually has them but he's showing out of stock.

I am also in Austin and just had my windshield shatter this weekend, damn kids! Ryan did you have any luck? I thinking of ordering new glass and seal from British Atlantic and trying the string if I can't find someone to do it for me. Might call Clay at Motorcars Ltd.

Is the RoW seal the same as the NAS?

Yes exactly the same...but do yourself a favor and make sure you get a genuine one. They just seem more robust, and in my opinion a little more pliable.

I think for some parts, the genuine parts are absolutely superior - for example, on the rubber axle caps, engine seals, etc - but my Proline windshield gasket from Rovers North worked just fine and is a good quality item.

If you can't source a genuine for cheap, I personally don't see an issue with making an exception for the windshield seal.

I think I had both and the windscreen guy complained more about the genuine one.

Correct me if i'm wrong guys but there are two gasket types...the solid piece and a split one. The gap in the split one tends to widen/expand over time and water will migrate through the gap.

I'm pretty sure they all have a seam actually, it's just sort of hard to see. But that is a good point, always put the seam TDC (top dead center) at install.
