Anyone in the world of TR7 DHC's able to supply me with the following information on original door seals.
1. Exact length
2. Photo showing ends of the door seal, are they closed off or left open?

Can't be 100% sure if mine are original, but probably.

The ends are open and it's approx 86" long (IOW it's uniform cross section throughout)

Hard to measure exactly because the bends have taken a set.

Steve, Thank you for your reply.
Sorry to be a pain but if you could help with the following please.
Attached find profile of the oiginal style seal.
Can you do a string measurement of both the seal from within the pinch weld and where the seal attaches to the body.
Also a couple of photos of the ends and the finisher that the ends go into.

Cheers and Merry Christmas
Tony.

Tony:

This guy supplies OEM exact copies and aftermarket replacement kits for our cars: MacGregor

I have dealt with him before. He had impossible to find seals for my TR6 factory hard top. They were a perfect fit, and top notch quality.

Vance,

I have already made arrangements to mfg exact copies of OEM for the TR7 market, all I need is measurements and end finish photo for the TR7 DHC market in particular in Australia.

I know about McGregor's seals.

OK, well here are shots of my door seal ends. As far as I know they are totally original. In suprisingly good shape, too.

Vance, Thanks for the photos, hate to be a pain in the you know where. But are you able to take the photos at a wider angle I need to know exactly where they fit.

I am 95% certain but just to make sure for the manufacturer.

I looked at the McGregor site, no clear photo of the product.
