    Gotcha - thanks for the info. I'll likely go this route.

    Proper hood seal manufactured by DeLorean Industries. Silicone gaskets do not have enough give and require extensive adjustments to the front end alignment. Including but not limited to hood hinges (height adjustment behind head lamp buckets) and fenders to compensate for the lack of compression.

    Outer Rubber Door Strips

    I have just about finished installing my Outer Door Seals. DMC CA did the inner ones but I thought I could handle the outer ones. It is a time consuming job and I have found not much sticks to the fiberglass but no problems with sticking to the stainless. The old seals had plenty of silicone so requires scraping and sanding off. I used Sikasil Acetic Cure RTV (an alternative to Wurth Bond) in a cartridge but could only get it in clear rather than the black I wanted. The trick is securing the rubber in place long enough for it to cure. As I said, nothing including various tapes will stick to the fiberglass so I have used bits of cloth and wood chocks to secure as much as possible. All looks good and I have one half of the door left to do and both door seals will be finished. Pain in the ass job but it looks better than the cracked and brittle rubber that was there. Next job, getting the aerial mast fixed, motor works fine but the mast is toast.
