    Default Floride window rubbers

    I need to replace the rubber for the rear quarter windows on my Floride. I remember someone was producing them but I have lost the link. Can anyone help?
    Regards

    Noooup I don't have any, but Chris Hartwell will know if you wish to send him a PM because he doesn't frequent AF very often.

    Further to the above. Be aware that although some suppliers will sell the correct rubber profile it may not necessarily have been moulded to the correct curvature, instead extruded as a straight length of rubber. The problem begins when you install it and expect the rubber to follow the tight radius of the window without puckering.

    Me too. I joined their club as well. I got an almost full set of rubber for my Floride S from them. I am also Robin so perhaps its the name that helps.

    I'm not so sure. I found patents on puckering during manufacture but not much (read anything) on after the fact.

    I'd be very weary of puckering, it could have irreversible consequences
