Snugtop seals

Post by aarockonthedarkside »

Anyone have info on where to buy replacement seals. For the snugtop. And struts. I only have 1 side and half is missing at that. Any help be great. I'm in North TX.

I finally got around to taking my snuglid off to work on it. There's a local shop that makes gaskets and does hand cutting as needed. I'll post pics and tell them to keep a template in case there's orders from online. It may be a 'mail a check with your order' type thing, but it's a reliable shop I've dealt with for a decade for work stuff.

No timeline. I hope I don't break anything removing them.

That would be awesome. I'm up for even making some out of an inner tube if I have to. But only 1 of the big rear ones was I. Tact and it was haging on by glue and just barely at that. So I weather strip glued it back in place till I figure out what to do.

Having them made is probably the only solution...apparently there were some NOS items around a few years ago but they are all gone.
If someone can truly fabricate them sucessfully, that would be a big deal. I rebuilt a Snugtop a year ago or so... fortunately my gaskets were still viable. 8)
Keep the thread updated please...

I if could get the measurements of the rubber stripping, I am thinking of have some made. also most of the pictures I have seen show the bigger strip on the main lid, not the cab shelf.
