Windscreen trim

Post by Attack2001 » 11 Jun 2012 12:28 pm

Just changed the windscreen and unfortunately managed to break the bit of chrome trim sm2 I've got the window in now, but i need the trim as it looks like its meant to split the rubber i believe? to seal it properly? I cant fidn the trim anywhere, so does anyone know of a company that produces a universal strip that i can use? i've tried europa spares and they havent got anything. Any ideas?

Ring up Bill Davies at rarebits4classics. I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago on a different topic for 300's, but he does a fair number of windscreen seals and wouldn't surprise me if he had correct sized filler strip in stock, if you had the dimensions written down on a photo of the cross section for him. Ours is *very* close in size to Dolomite and Imp when I compared them the other day.

I don't think you need to worry about that. I never fitted the damaged trim back, and had no problems with the seal.

Cheers
