#1 Hood cantrail seals

Post by tim wood » Sun Jan 27, 2019 4:22 pm

Hi all,
I am just about to replace the seals which fit twixt the window glass and the hood frame. I say replace but the originals don’t exist. I’ve not tackled this job before and am anxious to get as good a seal as possible. I’m particularly concerned about ensuring that the cut lines at the point where the hood frame folds are correct.

Any hints or tips ( other than take it to a professional) would be appreciated.


Series 1 FHC purchased 40 years ago. Courted my wife in it.
Series 1 2+2 when the kids were small now sold.
Series 1.5 OTS in opalescent maroon, Californian car. My retirement present.

Aldridge have some excellent rubbers that they use. They would fit for you very well or supply.
