RUBBER BODY SEALS AND GASKETS

VINYL-COVERED DOOR SEALS (DRAUGHT
EXCLUDERS), TR2, TR3, 1954-57
I have been a TR enthusiast for forty years, and I am only just now getting
these parts sorted out.  Most vendors list and most enthusiasts use the fuzzy door
seals on these models, but this is not original.  Where the fuzzy seal is a rubber tube
covered with wool moquette material, earlier models actually used rubber tubes
covered with vinyl material to match the vinyl used to trim the car's interior.  In
front of the door opening, this seal was cemented onto the curve of the scuttle end
panel to seal air coming into the car through the crack in front of the door.  The
carpet was then installed over the raw edge of the seal, and a curved vinyl-covered
wooden fillet was installed over the raw edge of the carpet to provide a finished
look.  At the rear of the door, a similar seal was installed on a tacking strip, and the
raw edge was hidden by the quarter trim panel.  The rubber tube inside the rear
draught excluder was smaller diameter than the tube inside the front door seal.  The
original seals I used to match for this project came from a long door TR2, and I have
compared with those on an original 1957 TR3.
We are in the process of making all of these parts at The Magic Carpet Factory,
and we will supply kits which include all four draught excluders made to the correct
lengths, with ends finished as original.  We will also include the wooden fillets
installed in front of the doors, trimmed to match the draught excluders.  We can
match any of our own interior colours, and we will also supply parts for those who
want to cover them with another material.
