1977 VW Bug Rubber Seals
We try to take the headache out of the VW restoration process. This is why we hand pick all of the seals that we put in the kits, create kits customized for each year and model of classic VW, and offer the highest quality seals available so you can purchase one of our rubber kits knowing that you are getting a superior product.
While our rubber seal kits simplify the process, save you money by bundling your parts together, and include our Exterior Restoration DVD, we understand that not everyone needs a complete kit. This is why we sell our Rubber Seals individually as well.
We offer both Cal-Look Style Window Seals and American Style Window Seals so you can achieve exactly the look you desire for your air-cooled Volkswagen bug. Cal-Look window rubber is a popular style of after-market window seals that do not come with a molding groove. Cal-Look Seals are easy to install and do not require trim. Our American Style window seals are just like OEM. They come with a side molding groove that accepts chrome trip to give your car a polished finish.

How to Install Door Seals.
DO NOT WORK YOUR WAY AROUND THE DOOR.
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
Our Door Rubber Kits are available with German Seals or Brazilian Seals and include all of the seals necessary to completely restore your VW Door Rubber.
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.
