[For Sale] 'Wolf' door top seal kit

Back when I rebuilt my 110 I spent many hours sourcing a new set of seals/channels for my wolf/aluminium door tops. I wasn't a fan of the felt option as they quickly wear and rattle.

After ordering a few samples and speaking to suppliers I bought a huge roll (because that's the only way I could buy it) of the correct size flock lined rubber channel at great expense. It worked wonderfully but I've got quite a bit left even after doing all 4 door tops and sending some to Badger110 for his.

Essentially its a very similar product to that offered by Garrison Outfitters through mudstuff but, in my opinion works better and is of a higher quality than that offered by the eBay suppliers.

Anyway, I've got enough left to do 4 door tops with each requiring 2x 600mm, 1x 450mm and 1x 500mm strips. This leaves a little excess for fine trimming. I should also be able to supply replacement rivets if you need them.

Fitting is fairly simple and I'm happy to provide guidance if required.

Price per door top - £20 inc. UK postage or £35 inc. UK postage for a pair.

If there's enough interest then I can look into getting another roll, as I say its very good quality and was made in England.

One pair sold to v8bob, one pair left. I'll speak to the manufacturer on Monday to see about getting hold of another roll. 1986 127 V8 Build Thread

Is this different to Woolies Universal Window Channel?

Good question Hank, they're similar but different, most notably the base width dimension. I tried the Woolies channel but found it to be too large to fit snugly in the door top without impeding the sliding of the windows. Hence, I sourced a roll with the 'correct' dimensions. This stuff seems to be a higher grade/more flexible than the woollies channel too. 1986 127 V8 Build Thread
