Window Question on 2 Piece Rear Door Build Up &

When we bought our 110 2 door, it came wilt a full length long cab hardtop with rear standard door.

I converted it to a pickup and cut the rear door in half.
The machine shop made me a 1/4" steel strip with chamfered edges that matched the shape of the series IIA door top divider strip. I welded the strip onto the rear door bottom and cut and welded 2 of the IIA divider strips together and pop riveted it to the top of the door bottom.

Then the shop made another metal strip for the top portion of the door with 3 studs so the 2 pieces can bolt together after the corresponding holes were drilled.

It turned out nice and does not flop around.

Since there is no rust except for the stains from the rear tire mount, it will look good with a fresh coat of paint.

Now for the question.
Years ago we use to be able to get the black sticky window putty, but have been unable to locate any listings for it with web searches and checking the RN web site.

Any suggestions as to where to get the stuff other than a local auto glass and window shop which we will check Monday.

No, I think he is looking for dum dum. It is 3M product and comes in strips.

Not quite sure what you're looking for but I immediately thought of 3M.
3n has this stuff great for sealing between body panels

I heart it too.

The uses on a land rover are innumerable!
