Door seal upgrade

Post by Halden »

I recently bought a strip of door seal which presses on to the sheet metal seam of the cab. I highly recommend doing this. A twenty foot roll is just enough to do both doors. You'll have to close the doors a little firmer until the rubber is kinda broken in a little. A little Sil-glide might help that process

Very little wind noise.

I plan on replacing the seals on the door as well. This is one of the best ways to combat road and wind noise. My dad even commented how quiet the ride down the freeway in my 82 was with it.

Edit: Added some pictures

The actual gasket part did not fit under the trim on the floor so well. I'm going to try and find a more flexible material for that little stretch.

Thanks for the tip. I've been using stick on rubber seal. This is way better. Gonna get me some.
