    Weather stripping kits...

    I wish there was a way I could phrase this without starting a war, but ok here it is...

    Question: What is the difference between SpecialTauto's weather stripping kit and DMCHs? Other than STAs is 190.00 vice DMCHs 264.00.

    I've been bouncing back between the two and they each look to be about the same except I think DMCHs has the rubber for the tops of the doors.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Personal expierience?

    .....civility...

    Just a quick question: do you need a kit or are you just curious?!

    I thought I needed a new one. In fact I "probably" do. I can tell I've got some tears, but hey, I stay dry! The only time a little water gets in is when I use a power washer, even then its very rare and only a drop or two.

    I found that after re-applying some 3M weatherstripping glue to pieces that were coming loose, my leaks were resolved.

    I've held off as long as I dare. I hated to ask, but they're both a lot of money and with close to 80 bucks on the line I figured the question was waranted.

    It is really a matter of getting what you pay for IMO.

    Playing the here, so does that mean we shouldn't buy your rear wheel bearings?

    That said, of course I'd buy your wheel bearings but your response was pretty ambiguous to me. If you know STA's or DMCH's are crap tell us. I've seen both fail prematurely.
    eBay selling at it's best I can tell you stock Delorians and quite a bit of slugs so the Turbo is a super nice up-grade.

    I can see where that would come into play. But price and quality of product are two different things. I've dropped the price on bearings with National units we can warranty if failure occurs.

    The break down in kits is this. I sell the same kit as Houston with different inner and outer door seals:

    DMCH/DPI kit includes lower door seals STA does not.

    DMCH/DPI kit includes rear louvre seal pieces STA does not.

    DMCH kit requires clips on inner door seals DPI and STA does not

    DMCH requires adhesive on outer door seals DPI does not

    STA kits are packaged tightly causing creases etc DMCH/DPI kits are not

    STA kits feature annoying sharpy writing on outer door pieces DMCH/DPI does not

    I ended up going with DPI's. They're high quality, fit perfectly, and the self adhesive parts are more than adequate without requiring "assistance" from other canned or bottled adhesives.

    Note of caution though: Installation of the upper door seals (rubber strips) is a real job. If you take it to a professional be sure they know what they're doing. Josh offered free tech assist via phone to the very reputable shop I took 1258 to, and they disregarded it and decided to do their own thing. The results were dammage to the tops of one of my doors. It's the toughest part of the job and need to be done correctly.
