READING DSC'S THREAD ON TAKING HIS TOP OFF REMINDED ME THAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR REPLACEMNT RUBBER FOR A COUPLE OF THINGS, AND WOULD RATHER NOT PAY MARV FOR THEM.

GASKET FOR BASE OF WINDSHEILD
WETHERSTRIP THAT HOLDS WINDOWS IN TOP AND WINDSEHILD
GASKET FOR BASE OF TOP


ANYONE HAVE ANY CHEAP MATCHES? WHERE HAVE YOU GUYS GOTTEN THIS STUFF? I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR A SOURCE OF JUST RUBBER STRIP, AROUND 3" WIDE AND 1/8 THICK, WHICH I THINK I COULD USE FOR THE TOP AND WINDSHEILD GASKETS, PLUS I NEED IT FOR PREVENTING METAL-METAL CONTACT THAT WILL WEAR THROUGH THINGS LIKE THE BASE OF MY RADIATOR. THANKS

For the hardtop to the tub seal, I use that two sided tape that is used to seal camper shells to the bed on pickups. Just peel off one side so it only sticks to the hardtop.

rubber seal for hard top and stuff

I am not sure what kind of rubber insulators you neeb for the radiator and such but i've used sliced sections of innertube and that holds up to weather and abrasion very well. Just use emblem adhesive (3M brand available @ any parts stores).
That seems to adhere better than the weatherstrip adhesive.
Just a suggestion!:)

I bought, but you can probably scrounge a mudflap,preferably plain that you can use a cheepass Chinamaneese punch set and a vise to punch out about any round rubber washer, isolator, dampner, body mount etc. You can't cleanly drill the shit, but if I want square, I cut it on a bandsaw then punch around hole in it for the fastener. I've also used truck innertubes for the same applications where I needed thinner pieces.
"My sister was sooo ugly, Daddy tied a mudflap to her ass to keep the dogs from fuckin' her on the way to school"
I put a piece of cutting board, HMWPE? behind the mudflap and get a clean cut W/O trashing the cutter.
Works for me.
