DIRT INGRESS @ REAR DOORS AROUND ARCHES

Post by colin6377 » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:13 pm

Hi Guys , Most of you have probably noticed the tendency of dust & water to find its way into the area between the rear doors & exposed wheel arch which is lacking in a seal at its outermost edge to prevent this occuring ? Anyone getting into the rear of the car would not be best pleased to have their gladrags covered in deposits which tend to accrue in this very area given it would be very difficuilt to avoid on entry/exit ! I have installed extra seals within the aforementioned area as a possible solution to the problem but as yet have still to see if it will actually work ? Will keep you posted if it does . In the meantime a few pics to let you see my work , THOUGHTS ?

Colin.

Hi Colin

That looks really good, I hope it works.
