I have a brand new NOS front cab to door corner seal you could use to form a mold from. You'd have to make a mirror mold of the other side. Let me know .... these things are like gold.

Uhhh... dumb question: what is that and where does it go? Pics of installed? Sorry if I'm being stupid, but I can't place that on my truck...

There is also a seal on the other end of the door at the top and a rubber bumper. Makes a 6-piece set for both doors.

I have the NOS front cab seal from Teking in my hands. Man, what a nightmare part. But, We are gonna give it a shot and see what I can do with it. If anybody has the door seal, I need a sample of it as well. Along with any of the other seals too. I think my long term goal is to try to recreate all the parts to provide us Zoner's these parts. Tooling may be the only killer on these things. But I have no problem putting forth the effort to get pricing on them. I can do about anything along this line, but sometimes the tooling is so outlandish, it doesn't make economic sense. I already supsect we are talking about $1000 for tooling, per side for the Cab corner that Teking sent me. May be able to do it cheaper if I send it to Taiwan, but I hate to do that to our Made in America Trucks. But if enough of us put in for it, I see commitments for about 30+ sets, I think I can make it tolerable for us all. Gonne give it my best shot anyway!

could you modify them enough to make them one model fits both sides and cut the tooling in half?

Yea, I'm gonna look at the existing seals versus what I can produce economically. May be able to improve new versus old. This ain't gonna be no easy task, but I'm gonna seee what I can do. I'll keep everybody posted as things progress.

I know some people in Taiwan, as well as... *choke*...China, who might be able to help. They're people I have had a longstanding relationship with for 15 years, so they wouldn't be screwing me. None in the rubber parts business, but they know people, ya know....

If it might help....

My family has been in the industrial rubber business since 1974. Seals, gaskets, hose and fittings and molded rubber goods. My long term personal goal for all of this is to provide the hard to find gaskets, seals, molded goods and brake lines. Both in rubber and Stainless. Custom or original. Maybe even the tubing assemblies. I have the equipment to do it all, just not the time to devote to it. But as I hire more people, 45 at present, I hope to have a little help so I can work on all this. As my only hobby, I love working on my M715. So I hope to stay on a decent roll and make this stuff for us. From experience, I would love to keep a complete two door set, 12 pcs, under $100. But we'll see what works out. If anybodies curious about me, I have a simple web site, with a new one in the works, that gives you some info on my company. www.cardinalrubber.com
