    Default MSA Hood to Cowl Seal. Is there better?

    Hi guys. I recently bought some rubber seals from MSA (by Precision?) for when I do a respray of the body. However I thought I would replace the hood to cowl seal and found that it felt rather inferior to the original in size and quality. Is there another source for getting this seal that is closer to original?

    Image shows the difference in profile. The larger one is the original and the rubber is better quality. The shorter length of the other does not fix the greatest to the body edge fold.

    Vintage Rubber has it for $35 US.
    That is probably as good as you can
    get. They have cross-sectional image
    on their site.

    Yer, Vintage Rubber is the way to go. I have had seals from them and they fitted like the original. By far the best IMHO.
