    I did a search but couldnt really find the posts I was looking for. Who has the best door weatherstrip ? I want to be able to close the doors without slamming with the new weatherstrip in place. Any advice ? Thanks.

    Dennis Carpenter has good rubbers,but you will have to slam doors until the rubber "seats" itself

    Did you buy them from Dennis or Macs ? Do they both sell the same weatherstrip? Thanks.

    Bought it from C&G Ford but they get it from Dennis however I think Dennis is the only one who makes all the reprorubber?
    I found C&G to be the cheapest overall and more of a smaller mom and pop business.

    My Econo came with what were supposedly 'Carpenter' door weatherstripping seals. After several years of 'slamming', they never did improve. Have torn them off (Helluva job), and planning on using the ones from 'Tim' at'EconoUSparts'. He affirms that they are MUCH improved over the Carpenter stuff (softer)....If they don't work, it's a major disaster trying to get them off. Waiting for the doors to be painted now. Will report in the spring!

    That's the only thing that's keeping me from replacing door seals...paint. At least on the insides. When I get them I'm planning on getting them from Tim.

    If you already have the Carpenter seals, the front edge is the problem. Its obvious its a different type rubber than the rest. It's too hard, thick and dense. Turn it over and using a razor knife carefully cut a V in the back to hollow out the seal so it can collapse when the door closes. It's either that or buy a whole new seal from me.
    It's sad that you pay $119 for a seal and have to carve it up to make it work. I sell mine for $109 a set, no modification needed.

    I could try and steer you towards buying new ones from me but that's just not me. If I can help you with what you already have I will. We all need a break now and then.

    Just finished installing a set of 'Tim's' seals, and they work significantly better than the Carpenter jobs.  Used 3M 80019 adhesive..very good stuff, but don't use much! It's a bitch to
    clean up, and really sticks!
    Carefully observe how the original seals were located....mine came with markings for "DS"
    and "PS"...after an hour of trying to figure em out, I realized they were marked wrong.
    After that, I slowly installed them at about a foot or two at a time, to allow adhesive to set up.
    The doors still take a firm action to shut them, but not the blood-curdling slams the Carpenter versions needed.
    Bottom line: Go with Tim.


    Error! The right number for the 3M adhesive is 80119 (black)

    My Carpenters seals say lr and rr on them, seems like that would mean left rear, right rear but these are for the front doors as they have the clips on the bottom. Does that still mean left and right side, I had no seals to start with to compare.
