My Anglia has been treated to a respray and it’s time for fitting it all back together. I bought door seals from the club but they cannot supply the filler piece that runs down the front edge of the door on the outside. Has anyone got any ideas on what I could use? East Kent Trim do a bit they call
Door Shut Edge Trim
which sounds like the right bit but I’m not 100% sure. Will try and get a pic on tomorrow if my explanation isn’t very good!
Will also be looking for advice on which way round the seals go :?
I’m sure I saw instructions somewhere but can’t find them now.March 31, 2010 at 11:12 pm #23286April 1, 2010 at 6:40 am #23287
Thanks for that Svein,hoping to find something in Britain if poss as I really need to get it back together asap as it’s filling up someone elses garage. Will order from them though if I don’t find any other options.April 1, 2010 at 10:16 am #23289April 1, 2010 at 10:22 am #23290
I never bothered to put those back on mine and I’m think right in saying the later Anglias didnt have them either.April 1, 2010 at 12:13 pm #23292
I was thinking that they didn’t really look like they do much? It doesn’t look like it will let any water in without it but I wasn’t sure.
Mine is a ’67 though so it is quite a late one,South African built though if that would make a difference.April 1, 2010 at 12:16 pm #23293
I dont get any leaks by not having it lets put it that way. :lol: All it does I think it stop water from entering the A post area. When i’ve washed the car, it always seems to stay dry there anyway.April 1, 2010 at 12:42 pm #23294
Thats good enough for me thanks :D
Tried East Kent trim this morning and it was the wrong bit i was looking at :roll:
It can go back together now :D
Any tips on glue for the door seals? I have some 3M spray glue I use for sticking photos to backings for framing or there is some at work but I can’t remember the make just now.April 1, 2010 at 12:47 pm #23295
East Kent sell the best glue I think
If cleaned OK ahead of assembly it will not come off again.
I ordered the 1/2 l boxApril 1, 2010 at 12:57 pm #23296
Yes East Kent glue is the one to use.
Beware though, it does not have an indefinite shelf life. :shock: :roll: :oops:
Order it when you are going to use it.April 1, 2010 at 1:00 pm #23297
