Failing that, has anyone got a spare pair that they'd like to sell - they needn't be pristine.

|10/02/2004 08:56:33||Alec||They do shrink in time, like the rubber behind the chrome door strip. My trick with that is to put them in the oven at about 80-90°C, get them nice and warm and then gently stretch them out and hold them like this until they cool.
If you are careful this can be very successful.
|10/02/2004 13:01:35||ian f||Thanks for your suggestions.
Has anyone tried using rear light gaskets? The profile's not far off the panel seals, so I might have a go at heating one as per Alec's suggestion to see if it can be straightened.
|11/02/2004 08:27:57||Alec||I have tried that without success, you just can't get the bends out.|
|11/02/2004 11:40:27||simon||I have utilised the rear side windows rubber, which cushions the glass to the steel frame with ok results.
In doing so used the verticle part of this frame as a strong and pre-drilled battery strap (along with threaded rods from a 900 battery holder).
