Door and rear window seals?


Does Woolies carry the original door seal? I couldn't match the trashed ones on Phase 1 #00123 with their web page.  Nothing similar from Moss or Roadster Factory here in the US either. 

My car had same seals on doors as rear window.  Car should be ready for the road this month (I hope).  Will send pics.

From Memory, I think that Rear quarter window seal is Part No 138-BLK and Door seal is Part No 266A.

In UK, Woolies will send samples if you ask, it's definitely worth an email to see if they will send to US.

There isn't much trim that woolies can't match, and the quality of the rubber is is very good.

On the Warwick, which had it's original seals, I was able to match them to Sprite seals.  (#138X).   These are cloth covered.  Moss carries four colors.  I think Wollies caries 5 colors.

Moss sells t he seals by the kit, which doesn't work for us, so if Moss is your vendor, you may need to swing by a Moss location or plead with a sales rep to send you a sample and them sell it by the foot. 

Here is a picture to a similar seal.

I had the same seal around the doors and windows.    They are a real pain to install around the rear windows!

P1080722.JPGP1080725.JPGMy My car had the same fuzzy weather strip on the quarter windows and the doors. These images are from the door surround.
I'm sure from new, as this car went into a barn in the '70s, and had not been messed with.

I have bought their 264-BLK, the larger size like 138-BLK, but it is too big, so i'll be ordering the 138.

I plan to slit the bulb before I install it in hopes that it will collapse enough to allow the doors and windows to close enough, and be a bit closer in design to the original.

Well, now that I look at the window seal, I'm questioning the fuzzy part.

These look like they are cloth, without the fuzz, even under the side upper trim panel which covers that window trim and should have still kept the fuzz intact.

Has anybody actually used the woolies trim with the bulb? I'm concerned that the bulb might keep things from closing properly.

Great info. and picture.  The remnants of the seals on 00123 did not have any fabric left on the metal clips, but rubber is identical.  Have ordered samples of 2 most likely seals from Moss but if not workable will contact Woolies in UK.  Most appreciative of responses as 00123 and I would be SOL without this forum.

The reason I questioned the whoolie finish was because I looked at a Midget and an MGB, a bit newer and they had the same look as mine. it looked like cloth covering.

They did have a bulb, not the V shape, which my car has.
