I took Mel to meet an ex colleague on Saturday.

He's now started up his own business in body repairs and is a total magician with fabrication, prep and paint.

We discussed the job but I need your thoughts on removing the rear side windows and the tailgate window to do the job properly.

The side window rubbers don't look too bad, but the tailgate rubber looks more like a 2 part epoxy it's so hard and brittle. (I'm sure it's not 2 part epoxy, just a 26 year old seal)

Are these seals still available guys n girls?
Cos there's no way that tailgate seal is going back in. So it might be a masking job and black touch up where the "seal" is chipped.

Any help, experience, or stockists would be gratefully received.

MelC is a 1994 JDM ST205 in red.


May the Fours be with you.

I have approached TCB in the past for quotes.

Thanks for the info Darryl.

Out of interest, are you part of TCB? Or perhaps you just had the details to hand as you've recently replaced one?
