Hi I want to ask if anyone knows where to get the weather strips for a 1985 Supra door? I’d assume it’s hard or impossible to find but if anyone knows a substitution like a different car models weather strip or something to kinda make the outline look the same all the way around, please let me know. It is just a piece of plastic but I need ideas on what to do haha. Thankyou
(First post and I’m new to cars so I have pictures to help)
Yeah the sweet spot for cars is 15-20 years old. That's when people get rid of them. After that you need to find the correct forum and ask. Lots of parts hoarders. Thankfully we have them for these 35-40 year old cars.
Painting in place can be fun. Just remember to tuck the tape under the edge if you can without touching the part. My trim is off the car so time to play with spray cans. Just as soon as it stops raining and being just above freezing.
This week si looking up.
I picked up some wrap for another purpose where I ended up using paint.
That would be something to try too. I just hate it when the wrap gets air pockets though. There are allot of little bends in there.
Also I wonder how it would wrap around the ends?
Ahh too much heat makes it shiny. That's invaluable advice! There's nothing like being 95% done and screwing it up at the end. BTDT.
Had that happen last year when I thought I would clear coat a piece for extra protection. The clear coat came out in gobs and ruined the piece. FTW. lol
This is plastic. I picked away at it while watching TV using my nails. I did all the front windshield trim and made a hell of a mess because I WAS watching TV and missed the trash bag some of the time.
The side trims are similar. Allot of the time the plastic comes off in little sheets. Just watch the end caps. They should be separate but don't tweak them too hard as you will need them for the final finish.
