    Default weatherstrip vs seals ? ie door seals ?

    hello all
    i was wondering if anyone knew the difference between these seals vs weatherstrips** msa list both so do i need to get the seals along with the weatherstrips ? I installed the weatherstrip around both doors already and i am still getting a little leakage on the driver side so am i missing these door seals ?
    thanks guys

    Hey Peter, can you tell exactly where your leak is? There are seals on the car body that seal the door when its closed. There are seals on the door above the door hinges. And there is a strip on the underside of the door. Some Z's had seals across the top of the stainless steel window frame.

    Much luck!!

    P.S. Do you have a catalog for either Motorsport or Victoria British? They show better pictures. Motorsport's website isnt too good. VB's site wont show anything.

    Seal go betwen two fixed pieces, like windsheild & frame, 1/4 window & frame, fender & body. weatherstrips go betweeen moveable parts like doors & body, side window & frame.
