Wanted to Buy / 65 66 NOS Door seals
« on: June 22, 2021, 12:49:44 PM »
911 on this set. These are the little square rubber seals on the side of the door above the latch where the window and door meet. Evan consider a super nice mint used original set. Thanks guys!

Hey all trying to get the car ready for july, our car overheats with the rebuilt 2 core, I read that I might have over painted it causing problems with heat transfer. Swapped in a three core and no problems overheating, yes I did not paint that one lol. I am convinced I over painted it as I cant imagine that the car would overheat always with the two core. My question is can I get away with a three core or is that a few points deducted? Also with a three core does everything still bolt up without issue like the fan shroud, how about fan clearance? Thanks in advance!

Here is the kit, it was simple not sure if the exact kit, but it was just these pieces and I used a t5 bellhousing Again dont remember shortening my driveshaft but I did the work myself so might have skipped that step.

I might have not even had an adapter plate now that I think about it, the later bell housing bolted up to the engine. But my memory is bad. Sorry

I did the conversion in my 65, not tunnel mods, cut my hurst shifter and drilled two holes in it and mounted directly to t5s shifter, had to use the kits tranny mount. I dont believe I modified my driveline at all, but I suppose if you needed to the math is simple thickness of adapter plate and difference in length between the two trannys and shorten driveline by those numbers but I am not very technical. I dont remember the kit I bought, butnit was a 90 or 91 WC t5.

Hey Jerry, seller is a super nice guy spoke with him on the phone for quite some time, just a bit misinformed on those parts I believe.

Does the center force feel stock in regards to pedal pressure, aside from wishing our car was a hertz for an automatic, need a clutch that does not kill my hip and knee.

Well I came up with 34 inches based on the pic above, but its seems to short to me, my car is apart to even try to see if it will work. But here was a first attempt at it. Maybe someone will chime in and help with the measurment of there wires.

I agree 100%, anything that is better than what's currently available is always a winner! Bob made a good point, old plastic versus possibly better modern equivalent plastic. Did not mean to come across as a negative nancy they were just questions of concern. Thank you again

You cannot use these molds to make fiberglass parts.  Also you can not make fiberglass parts fit.  They have to be made out of plastic so you can manipulate them to fit.  The price is probably going to be around $500 per set.
It could be my old age but I just dont understand, is anything being done to strengthen them/reinforce  them so they dont warp just like all our originals did and are?. Just like if an original 65 plastic gauge pod was replicated with the same material, it would just warp again. So excited and 8nterested in this project, I just want to better understand what I will be getting and if it's worth the time and effort for replacement. Thanks again for your efforts.

Hi Chad, Thanks for your efforts on driving this project with your friend. Question since there are going to be master moulds for the final product can you friend offer them in fiberglass also? I just cant see putting these on so that they can just warp again down the line.
