Andrias used the following on his, and he said it worked perfectly. A lot cheaper too!

I used these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2612985137...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT but I did try a few and were never happy so in the end I stepped the door frame out then cut the rubber down and stuck it on with silicone. I take some pics in the morning if you still at the build stage step it out I found it the only way to stop it leaking.

do you mean cut the return edge off and re-bond it making the gap smaller ?

Default door seal

20150321_124237.jpg sorry for the delay its been manic, don't know if you can work it out from the pick. think of the L shape profile of the door frame and then add a square infill just in the corner to step it out. just need to put the trim back on and mine is all finsihed

Default Window seal gap

i should have done this job before going to paint but that would have been too easy
IMG-20150919-WA0005.jpg
i marked around the closed window
IMG-20150919-WA0004.jpg
then measured 10cm back and cut along that line
IMG-20150919-WA0003.jpg
then the bit i cut of i refitted behind with tiger seal and countersunk rivets giving an edge to push the seal onto
IMG-20150902-WA0002.jpg
then bent and fitted the rain gutter which also went on with tiger seal and countersunk rivets finished off with filler, primer, satin black then satin black laquer. I was dreading this job as my GTO was already painted but we got fed up getting wet every time it rained...Ned
