Re: OMG Honda door weatherstripping fits perfect no cutting required !!

I'm really glad this Honda option is helping so many people out.

I just installed a set of Precision seals (from GMC Pauls mid last year) on my 72 and they worked very well. I still have a very small amount of door and front quarter adjustments to do, but I don't see the seals getting tight and requiring the slamming of the doors.

I just wanted to add this so that soon-to-be seal installers don't think this is the only route. It might be trial and error, but I got it the first time with Precision seals. Note: My truck had the rockers, cab corners, and bits of the front pillar and floor cut out and replaced, if that really matters.

I also opted for the precision seals. My passenger door shuts nicely. The drivers door requires force. If it doesn't get better I may have to go back to the Honda seals as much as I don't want to.

Mine was opposite. Drivers door closed perfect, Passenger required slamming and I tried adjusting the striker, hinges, even beat the rocker lip in to no avail. I returned all to the original positions and installed the Honda seals and all was well . I originally had seals from LMC on both sides.

My entire floorpan was a Dynacorn welded in as well as Rockers , cab corners and aftermarket doors both sides. I wanted to get the seals from GMC Pauls but they are not shipping to Canada these days as are a lot of US based suppliers.

I have the exact same problem when I had the body work done shop installed a new rocker. I have spent a $$$ on brand new precisions press-on which I cut trying to make them fit. I bought glue in can't close the door I'm sure the problem has to do with the rocker that was installed there is no groove anymore just filled in flat. It's been too long to return to the body shop they won't fix it. I'm going to try the Honda seal next see if it works. Diver side is original. The press on were the worst could not even get either door to close within 1/2 in inch it would have bent the door on either side. I think the later 70 plus they might fit better mine is a 67 probably was changed little by Chevy in later years.

Re: OMG Honda door weatherstripping fits perfect no cutting required !!

In regards to having to slam your door after installing new weather strip, if you look in
Chevrolet Motor division 1972 series 10 - 30 truck chassis service manual, Section 1B at body, Page 1-13 fig 35. It shows cutting a v notch in the weather striping at the bottom to allow air to escape, which lets the door close easier. It does help when using NOS or LMC weather strip. Good luck. Ken

Probably what I will do on the driver side where I have a factory rocker panel it closes okay I can see the bottom is tight. I wish I had test fit the door on the passenger side before it got painted. The aftermarket rockers don't fit like factory does first time learning curve on restoring.

I think after this one I want to restore a K series pickup with 4 link long arms suspension with an LS engine.
