You lead a charmed life, Sir. I would gladly pay $152 per
door seal for Type 44 OEM seals in black. My alternative has
been to scrounge for iffy used pieces that still have sound corner
joints on the rubber side and then spend hours and hours
re-gluing the fabric trim fabric to the seal, masking and re-dyeing
black. What is 10 hours of my time per seal worth?
I think more than $152.
