Hi

I met Bill from Rarebits at Beaulieu auto jumble last September and hoped to buy some lip type door seal for my Vitesse convertible.

Bill was short of it on the day but I am struggling to contact him thru facebook or a PM on this forum as I am hoping he may still have some available following the closure of Rarebits4classics.

Does anyone have some available that I could buy? ( I know Bill was the sole supplier of this)  

Has anyone been in contact with him recently?

This might be a bit of a liberty, but I am in the process of a full restoration of a 1360 convertible and I have thrown all the door, boot and window seal rubbers away. Is there a list showing what types are need as I will need to order a full replacement for all types.
Thanks

Lesson 1. Never throw anything away until you have got the correct replacement! You will probably be able to get all the seals. Try Canley Cassics, James Paddock, ANG classic parts, and Rimmer Bros, in that order. Good luck, Dave.


First Triumph: 200cc Tiger Cub. Followed by in no particular order, 350 and 500 Royal Enfield Bullet, Herald 1200, Herald 13/60, Mini 1275 GT, Vitesse 2L convertible, Audi 80, Audi 80 Sport, Fiat 124 Sport Coupe, Triumph 2000, Mk 2 Estate, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Stilo, Fiat Uno, Peugeuot Turbo Diesel(yuk), Lancia HPE 2000ie (wow! a dream!) So far 3 Heralds and My fourth Vitesse in the garage. I may have forgotten some... It's my age.. Oh , Honda 400 four.. Terrifying! And the 2 Renault 5s. Oh, and the Ford Granada 3 litre estate..I think that's the lot.

I'm not aware of any of these offering the correct door seal profile, someone correct me if this has changed.

Cheers,
Bill.

Everyone seems to sell the bubble-profile type which holds the door too far out from the bodywork or else makes closing a real slamming session. Unfortunately many suppliers also claim that this is all that is currently available, and advocate adjustment of the doors and catches to make it fit. I have a few metres of yours Bill salted away for the on-going convertible restoration and on testing it on other Heralds I find it allows the softer-slam against the catch and closes first time without springing back.
(BTW never saw you at Stoneleigh - where were you??


If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

I was in the same spot in Hall 1 as I've been for the last couple of years, albeit without the company banner this time.

Cheers,
Bill.
