Hopefully someone can help me here but I am having a bad hair daysad

I am refurbishing the cab on our club Ford 4000 tractor & it involves removing some of the glass panels, dealing with rust, then replacing the glass.

The glass is held in with a simple "H" section strip. I want to replicate that strip - I do NOT want the types with inserts etc - just the H type that one fixes with a cord.

I have spent the last hour on tractor sites, auto factors & rubber seal sites but no one seems to do it. Plus I am having problems knowing what to google to find it. I keep coming up with door & window draught excluder strips

Does anyone, into vehicle restoration, know where I can get a cheap H section strip, or what I should be googling for, please. I probably need about 10-15 metres, but not sure yet. Money is tight so I am very limited on spend

Thanks Sam Longley

Thanks, But unfortunately they do not list the simple "H" section. Only the one with the break in the front.

Googling 'H section vehicle weatherstrip' might find what you need. Or try your local agri engineers for help.

Could try Seals Direct, https://www.sealsdirect.co.uk/, they seem to have most shapes in their catalogue.

Plus 1 for Seals Direct. Ring them up as they have some odd sections not listed. Used them on my Citroen 2CV windows.

Good tip, fit the seals on a warm day especially if you have tight radius on the corners.

I have completely dismantled the cab & it is in my workshop for painting etc. so I will follow that advice & turn the heat up. I will not need a lot of persuasion in this weather.

Thanks.
