Thread: Door seals, BAC mail

    Door seals, BAC mail

    We have received new door seals for our 1978 Sierra (main doors
    only... baggage door seal too expensive). Any pointers on removing the
    old seals, solvent or scraping, what type of adhesive to use, and
    installation techniques would be appreciated. 3M Door Deal Adhesive
    from an autoparts store has been suggested.

    Also, as a member of BAC I am having trouble figuring out how to post
    this sort of message on BAC mail. Any help would be appreciated. Can't
    find anything on the website.

    Thanks.

    3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive is the ONLY way to go. Accept no
    substitutes. There are other "red box" glues out there that are less
    expensive, but they are not worth the 99 cent savings.

    3M General Purpose Adhesive Remover (Qt cans) is a great solvent for old
    glue. Most other solvents are too "hot" and will soften or remove paint,
    and are hazardous to plexi. While I would not SOAK an aircraft window in
    3M GPAR, it can at least be accidently sloshed on one and wiped off without
    ruining the window. (Ask to see my Tee Shirt from doing that...)

    A plexiglass scraper is a great tool for removing bits of glue and dried up
    rubber after you pull/cut most of the seal off the door. A 1/2" thick
    block of plexi sawn into strips and cut/filed to a chisel point that is
    knife sharp makes a great "aircraft" scraper that does not contaminate
    aluminum with steel and is soft enough not to scratch aluminum, etc.
