I am aware remanufactured seals are available from the traders, but I find these are not to my standard and I wish for a better product to fit on my own car.
Producing quality seals will require purpose made tooling for moulding the required shape. As is typical mould tooling is not cheap; these costs can only be recuperated by making these parts in quantities and offering for sale. Fortunately these parts also fit the Se5 and 5A as far as I know; this will help increase the likely hood of volume sales potential hopefully.
Much research has now been devoted to constructing these seals, and with several fresh ideas in mind work on making the tooling has started.
These new moulded seals will incorporate several improvements over what is currently available, and will feature;
Left and right handed seals,
Improved fit and sealing,
Matching indentations moulded into the rubber for frame projections clearance,
Moulded from premium modern rubber,
Long service life and no shrinkage.
I have yet to work out a final cost for the finished seals, but will try for a price at least comparable to what is currently available.
