Rear Door Seals

I recently decided to buy a pair of new auxiliary door seals, or whatever you call the small seals that fit on the outer frames of the rear doors. They are NLA but still available in Germany at a price that reflects the situation.

They look like simple items to install. But as usual with this car, there is a little more to the job than you might think.

Basically, similar to other seals I have installed, these new ones were slightly too short. Had they shrunk with age, or rather been made that way on purpose?  I don't know.

Therefore they had to be stretched, and also pushed into the curve of the door itself. Which required lots of clamps, in other words.

But the final result was pleasantly eye-catching.
