Trunk & side bag seals...

Post by rirons0625 » Thu May 26, 2011 10:07 am

The weather seals around the lids of the luggage on my 81 Interstate are all pulling loose and are a bit frustrating. It looks as if someone tried to use some sort of adhesive on them once, I'm really not 100% certain that they are original seals but they look like they may be. Does anyone have any suggestions for reattaching them, or is there a suitable replacement available that might work better? I appreciate your input and ideas!

Mine are also loose, and worse there broken into pieces for years of abuse.
someone has suggested using foam strips (car weatherstrip) around the boxes but I have not tried it yet.

don't get the foam ones, get the butyl rubber ones. The stay flexible longer and you can get the strips in the D shape from any good window shop or auto supplier.
