    Default Mix Door and Air Box Sealing

    Hello all,

    I have done some searching on how to seal the air box and the door in the air box. What I am curious about is how long these solutions lasted.

    For the door (in the thread above) folks recommended self-adhesive weather stripping for doors and windows as well as gluing a mouse pad to the door.

    For sealing the box folks were recommending plumber's putty, dum dum, A/C tape, and foam weather stripping.

    Can anyone report on how long these fixes have lasted?

    I like the mouse pad idea. I just wonder how well the neoprene will hold up to the heat.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Ben, as long as you use good quality materials there is no reason to believe they won't last many years. I rebuilt my heater box 2 years ago and it is working well but then I only use it in the early spring and late fall.
    I used thin foam backed vinyl from an Auto Upholstery shop for the faces of the baffle doors.
