SE6a Window Rubber Profile

Post by Jc29cdo » Fri Aug 17, 2018 8:53 am

Hi guys,

Just exploring options to replace the window rubbers (all round - windscreen, sides, quarters and rear) on my new SE6a. I have been reading through previous posts and have seen the struggles of others trying to fit replication rubbers at what I consider a huge cost (£98 for a rear quarter :shock: ).

Has anyone got a cut through profile shot of the rubbers for a SE6a including dimensions? I work of an oil and gas company and we often have to get custom made gaskets/seals/o rings made with a myriad of profiles. If I get a set of drawings/pictures of the profile I may be able to get these cut in house.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The SE6 windscreen rubber is a bit of an oddball profile (the glass is larger than the hole) - sort of "z" shaped. An alternative is possibly bonding the screen in: http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... en#p429543
Obviously not the intended way to fit one, but it seems to work. Drew also took an alternative approach to the rear side windows too: http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... ng#p400908

I’m also oil and gas and going offshore today.
I’m back on the 23rd
Having replaced my windscreen about 2 months ago I may have a scrap piece left over which I can photo / send you.
Drop me a line after the 23rd and I’ll have a look
