DB18 door-window seal

Post by yapyap » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:08 pm

Gradually restoring 1949 DB18 saloon but facing silly problem. All 4 doors are missing the seal which goes on the outside of the windows. It looks like it was nailed to the frame but not a scrap remains! So can anyone help with what the profile should look like, or preferably point me at a likely supplier?
Cheers.

Hello,

Could be worth contacting Phoenix Trim in Cullompton Devon and speaking with Kaye who is very helpful.

Kaye will send out trim samples once you know or have been informed what profile you need.

To assist, I have attached their online pdf catalogue which is comprehensive; hopefully it may help.

Good luck.

Regards.

Richard.

Try David Beales. He has had a number of rubber mouldings remanufactured especially for the DB18.

I have been put in touch with a fellow owner and will be examining his beautiful DB18 in the new year. Then armed with the Phoenix’s catalogue - which looks exceedingly useful by the way - I am hopeful at finding a match. Again, I’ll report back with results. Meanwhile thanks to all involved.
