Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

I have been looking a little at the replacement rocker panels, and it doesn't appear they have the lip that this slides onto. What are guys doing to have this lip? Maybe I am just not looking hard enough.

The lip is on the repop rockers but it is 1/2 the size of the originals.

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

The full replacement rocker panels (not the slip-ons) do indeed have the lip for the weatherstripping.

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

Any updates? Just linked to this from another member's thread. Seems like a nice solution, & thanks to the OP for sharing. Truly one of those "who woulda thunk it" moments.

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

Great write up and suggestion from user Rob Fisher, how about some pics and feedback from the users that have since posted here that they purchased a set?

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

I called to order a set. They asked if it was the seal "on the door" itself, or the seal that goes on the body. I guess I'm asking you guys which one?

thank you,
Tim

I would think all you need to give them is the part #'s listed in the first post:

I ordered a brand new set from Hondapartscheap.com
P/N 72315-SVA-A01ZA for the right side.
P/N 72355-SVA-A01ZA for the left side.
They are called Front Door Opening Seals and described as Graphite Black.
Brand new in genuine Honda packaging was $38.92 per side.
Lots of these cars in the wreckers so I am sure you could find them used cheaper. This particular weather-strip is used in 2006-2009 Honda civic 2 door coupes, the sedan has a smaller door opening size and does not fit.

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

It is the seal that attaches to the body.
Thanks

Wondering the same thing, need the users that purchased some recently to provide feedback?

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

I couldn't be happier with them.
Tight seal, no more wind whistling through the gaps.
And at about $35.00 a side and they just press on it was a no brainier for me.
Great bang for the buck.

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

Do you get that "wind whistle" at driving speed with these or do they seal well as well as let the door close correctly?

Alex

EDIT: Never mind.. I see you say the seal does it all and doesn't whistle. Thanks!

Re: 64-66 door weatherstrip-EUREKA!!!!

I have had them on the truck for a few months now and have found that they seal very well. Well enough in fact that I need to change the rubber around the vent windows because now they whistle.

So the Honda trim was a success for the knee knockers also? Just a little short?
