door seals

I need new door seals to stop all the wind noise. First is this difficult to change, second should I buy these from Turkey.

Yes you should buy these. I bought a set of for the doors and one for the trunk for my 1972 280 SE 4.5. Great quality and perfect fit. I have purchased many item for my restoration from him. He is willing to combine shipping if you ask.

I recommend him with out reservations.

Am glad you like the quality of these.

My own experience with other cars buying non oem quality rubber components has been very poor. They have looked good when you get them, but as short as 2 years later they fall apart.

Millers has the seals for $400, and they are very good quality. I have had them on for @10 years and look excellent still.

They are very easy to install though.

door seals

On the other hand I haven't had too much luck with this guy.
Difficult to get an answer to simple questions such as dimensions on products. And yes his parts are after market parts

I bought door seals for my '70 280S from him and they were actually a bit long which I found to be a good thing. But, after 3 attempts I could not get a trunk seal that fit correctly. I bought elswhere and the fit was fine.
