Stephen,
Did you buy and fit something from this supplier as from your link they don't have the same size and shape as the Amazon previously mentioned like this,
https://www.amazon.co.uk/4Meter-shape-R ... kownclu-21

If you did and it works it would be good to know which one works for you.

Pauljobr,

No I haven't. I just happened to come across their banner advert on the Telegraph website and bookmarked their site for future reference.

I did look at it but couldn't see anything like the Amazon version.

Paul, I will have another look at the Amazon version. It was just the dealing with China that put me off.

As has been said, if it's through Amazon then it's fine.
I ordered a roll of self-adhesive rubber mat for the garage wall to stop the edge of the door getting marked (No it's a tight garage and not because of my waistline) only cost a few quid and arrived from China in a couple of weeks.
So don't fret!

Good to know. I suppose it's only a few pounds anyway.

I used some old carpet on the garage wall, with a lining of plastic sheet behind it to stop any damp.
Works a treat !

Sorry to rehash this thread but how are the seals fairing after a summer and winter in use. I am biting the bullet soon and getting two lots from China to do all around the both rear doors.

Mine are working perfectly. I only did the rear doors and the rear shuts have stayed clean through some pretty damp conditions. There's a little bit on the front 'doorstep' but nothing excessive.

I did wonder how the adhesive would hold up, but so far so good, it all still holding. I gave the edge of the door a good clean with a degreasing spray first of course.

Thanks Nevyn. It looks a job for the next set of warmer days so I will order some over the weekend.
