Hi Guys,
I'm chasing Window gaskets. The current ones have perished from the sun at the bottom.
I originally thought I might cut the damaged section out and fit a substitute piece of rubber.
However, seeing the earlier search for the hatch gasket, it reminded me to ask if any of you might know where I can source these from.

While were on the subject, where can I get the plastic locks that are on the window? Same boat.

I gave up on those plastic locks. Two of mine were broken when I got the boat. I've came to the conclusion they were a bad design.
I am now in the process of researching another method of holding the window closed.

I also have the same boat. Lucky for me the plastic locks still are working. I am wondering as a replacement if a lever similar to what was on the no draft windows of the older cars would work.

I could use the gaskets to the outside windows as well. Please let us know if you find a good source. I have been regaling mine in place with 5200 adhesive.
The level locks are still in place because I never open the windows.

I found a car vehicle rubber section on Ebay.
It's description is 'Car vehicle black rubber D shaped hollow section' and they package it in 3.1m long coils.

The seller is in Hong Kong, the cost is around $15 with shipping on top of that (great value).

There are different cross section sizes available, I ordered the .47" x .39" 'D' section.
I thought that was a pretty close profile to what I cut out of the window.

As for the locks. I plan to self tap a hole next to the old lock postions (I have now removed them) and then screw fix a new lock which I shall fashion out of nylon.
