Windscreen seal - recommendations?

Post by thebigcheese »

Just wondering if anyone has any experience / recommendation of a decent windscreen seal? I've heard that the quality varies across suppliers.

Thanks!

You will not be disappointed. You can even fit screen single handed with that seal. Work round slowly and you can use a soft rubber mallet (gently) on the seal from the outside to make sure it sinks home as you work the string around. It will also look correct as it'll fit flush. Any money saved buying a lesser seal is soon lost in having to get six beefy blokes round to get the crappo seal to fit - plus it'll look wrong and you'll regret it ever afterwards. :D
