    Inner and Outer Door Seals - Who Makes the Best

    I'm needing some new inner and outer door seals...

    Wondering who makes the best and most robust.
    Different materials?
    Best fitting?

    Ready... GO!

    I installed DMCH's seals (purchased through MW) last year and have been very happy with them. I needed new seals because my old ones were rubbing on my doors preventing my wings-a-loft system from opening. The new seals don't rub and even after a year of having the doors closed on them they bounce back to the original shape.

    Comments here about the Inner Door Seal only:

    I'm with David P. I'm partial to the current version of the DMCH item. 2 years after installation they are like new. https://store.delorean.com/p-9440-inner-door-seal.aspx

    Details about it are in Post #7 of this thread about inner seals: http://dmctalk.org/showthread.php?16711

    That thread has plenty of other inner seal tips, too.

    Keep in mind that about 50% of the inner door seal durability depends on the installation job. A good seal that's not put on right won't last long. Avoid any wiping/interference between the closing door and the seal, especially at the top of the A-pillar. Be sure to get the seal all the way down onto the body tub flange.

    I should be clear as well that I only have the DMCH inner seals.
