The Sierra large baggage door seal is completely different from the main
cabin doors. It has narrow base area, a slight perpendicular flange, and a
P-section at the top of the flange. I don't yet have anyone lined up to
make them for us, and the Beech $700+ is inexcusable. They were $35 just a
few years ago. I have escalated the pricing issue to Beech procurement
management. Their main cabin door seals are very reasonable, comparable to
(or less than) most other aircraft brands, at $62 or so.

Subject: [BAC-Mail] Door seals, Sierra

We are about to install new door seals on the main doors (can't afford the
baggage door) of our 1978 Sierra. The appropriate page, 3-52a, is missing
from our shop manual and the one on the BAC site. Any tips from those who
have done the install? Recommended adhesives, removing old seals and
adhesive, techniques?



The seal material is one continuous strip. I'm taking a wild guess that the
baggage door seal is similar but of a different cross-sectional size.
Otherwise we'd all just order three doors worth and throw out the excess.
Anyone know if that is the case.



Thanks.
