VW Karmann Ghia Coupe Exterior Rubber and Seals 1960

Our hand selected kits take the frustration out of the restoration process by putting together all the Rubber Seals needed for a complete overhaul of the Exterior Rubber on your 1960 VW Karmann Ghia Coupe. We have created Complete Car Rubber Kits, Body Rubber Kits and Door Rubber Kits. Our custom made kits save you money and time by bundling together all of the seals offered in the Door, Body and Window Kits.

While our rubber seal kits simplify the process and save you money by bundling your parts together, we understand that not everyone needs a complete kit. This is why we sell our Rubber Seals individually as well.

How to Install Door Seals.

Starting at one end and working your way around the door stretches the seal as you go. You will end up with a bulge that will not fit in door channel. More importantly, this is not the way they were designed to install.

Proper Installation.

We recommend test-fitting your door seals before gluing.

1- Make sure you have a clean surface to work with. Remove any old cracked or rotted seal remnants from door channel if necessary.

2- Start by inserting door seals at all 4 corners. Glue in corners with weatherstrip adhesive.

3- Work remainder loose seal in between corners. Glue in place as seal is tucked / fitted inside channel.

4- Follow your weather strip adhesive dry-time guidelines. Cure times will vary by manufacturer.

5- **(If installing German Seals) German seals create an air tight seal when closing doors. This can make closing the doors difficult. Experience has taught us opening your windows a little to let air escape helps while breaking in new seals.0

The main difference between German and Brazilian Seals is not visual so much as it is the quality of the material. German seals feel like rubber, Brazilian seals feel like foam.
