1800 Door Gaskets and Window Channels

Got my door gaskets and window channels done:

A busy space

 

On a towel at the kitchen table is an ideal workplace.

Soapy water saved the day

 

Had to cut my own slot for this piece to go through. X-Acto 111 is my friend.

Noting where the dum-dum is from the factory

 

A pretty non-scientific removal method

These got new channels. Theres a slight bend in it that you have to emulate with the new material.


 

Tools of the trade. Mostly used the blue one but the yellow hook was good for the front lower door where space us tight.

The gaskets fit into a channel and came around 3″ too long, trim to fit

 

Had to do a little rust work. That provided a nice clean channel to work with.
