    I can buy the same thing, (or very close), from McMaster-Carr (Style 6 or 9)

    I doubt your McMaster Carr samples would work as the welting holds the door seal in place. However, this is a common part in the motorcycle world and should be readily available.

    Actually it will work. I used it on my previous Z many years ago, glued after-market rubber seal to the welting.
    Looked and worked fine, a better fit, in fact, than the precision rubber I used on my current Z.

    That price seems pretty reasonable for NOS Nissan Parts. With rubber NOS door seals are now in the $$250.00 per side range - if you can find any. Given all the hassle of fit and door closing issues with the after-market seals, OEM door seals seem like a place to spend the money.

    FWIW,

    Carl,

    I agree completely, if it had the OEM rubber seals. However, it's just the edge trim, no door seal, which seems out of line cost wise.

    Is the bare rubber seal, (not mounted to the edging), still available? I thought Nissan S30 door seals were NLA. At least that's what the Nissan dealer told me a couple years ago...

    yes - the NOS Door Seals, both with and without the pinch welting - are NLA - so you have to find someone that bought them years ago - and who now wising to resell them.

    Read my post 39 and see the pictures. That seal has the welting ( welting looks the same like the one TS posted ) on to it all in one. I've had no leaks since and easy door closing. If people are interested here I can buy it on a roll.

    And it's way cheaper than that 185 dollar for the welting alone !

I mean walking on the moon was pretty good, but how many times you’d gonna walk on the moon? But here was an affordable sports car that had real performance and looked like it cost a lot more than it did.

    Or, you can use KIA Sportage door seals like many of us have with good results.
    $20 at the wreckers or new from Kia.
