weatherstripping

Can anyone confirm my observation: I want/need to replace the door weatherstripping on my 95 ST. I need to replace just the 2 pieces (front and rear) on the door bottom (metal portion) of the doors, and it looks like the weatherstripping used is just run-of-the-mill, standard profile stuff that can be picked up at the body supply store. Am I right? Seems like most of the Rover suppliers want a lot more than this stuff can be bought for locally......opinions? Just want to know if there's some reason to use OEM Rover stuff. Thanks.

If it's not Genuine Rover stuff it may not leak properly!

Oh man, that's great! Only a Land Rover owner can truly appreciate that perspective................

Joking aside, anyone have any thoughts on my weatherstripping question? I performed a search, but could find nothing on this. If it turns out this hasn't been investigated by this board, I'll take it on myself to find the answer and let the forum know what I find. In the meantime, if anyone has an opinion, please let me know. Thanks.

I used some weather stripping from Autozone. Just like the original however I installed some .5 round foam inside the weather stripping in the area where the body curves so that it will not collapse.

Cheers...

Now that is FUNNY!

Seriously, does this mean that little beauty is running well enough to go out in the rain or just run through the car wash?

David,

I'm interested in the pieces you have, I will send you an email.

Sorry I missed you at RR7 but the truck is not quite up and running. Looks like I owe you more than a few beers now, but not on the trail.

Chris

JP, it's actually running well now, but it's yet to be determined as to the "weatherproofness" of it. After switching to a Mallory distributor and Mallory coil ('ol Mike does a good job, doesn't he?), I've at least gotten to the point that I now have some confidence in the truck. Now, to work out kinks (at least until others appear.........)

By the way, another guy in town who just bought a white '95 ST, your brother, and I recently discussed a short trip in the area. Unfortunately, since the REAL southern weather has just set in, it might get delayed for a few months, but I'll keep you posted in case you have some suggestions / want to go.....

I don't drink and drive. I try to stop for a second. RR7 was fun. Wish you had made it.

I have all three pieces. 2 sides are perfect but one has a separation on it. It would have to be glued. It looks like it's glued from the factory. Anyway, whoever wants them can get them. Name a price.

Cheers
