    Got a bit of a question, favour.

    I'm chasing the grey seals that go on the inside of the car, that mate up with the door seals. They're grey/blue/beige, whatever colour your interior is.

    They go up and around the pillars and seal between your door and the hood lining, I've included a picture so you's can see what I'm getting at.

    If anyone has these or can see them at the wreckers for a cheap price, and I mean cheap.. Let me know please. I'll repay kindly with sexual favours. To your wife/daughter/ gf etc. Either way.

    Thanks guys.

    Way ahead of you mate, no luck at these wreckers though, apparently they're in demand?

    So I'm going to have to get them elsewhere.
    If your in the wreckers ask them how much they'd want for them?? please

    Have you tried gracemere, i don't think they'd know of whats in demand. so you'd prob get it cheap, theres about 5 vls out there. Grey, beige and blue.

    I'll check through the messy shed tomorrow, I'm sure we've got a blue set and a tan set laying around, we've wrecked a VB and 2 VH's and I'm sure we grabbed those.

    Hey there bax,

    Nice project you got going there cant wait to see it finished.....

    I just recently pulled an entire interior out of my vl.....it is that blue colour, everything is there including the head lining.....took me 3 hours to remove it all.....even a manual centre console.

    I just recently purchased a series 2 berlina interior all grey....much better than blue :D

    Damn straight its better then blue. I painted all of the old blue stuff that was in there originally. Just need to track down a few things that I couldn't be bothered with and it'll be perfect.

    If you want to have a look, perhaps get a picture so I can check the condition. I'll be interested. Just have to name a price for me. I'm leaning towards 30 dollars or so??

    What are they called?

    And yeah I'd love to get new ones, but I'm trying to budget a little, the cheaper everything is at the moment the sooner I can get it done.. I'm hoping to be on the road soon.

    series 1 :)

    These seals are in ok condition, couple of little cracks in them but. only prolly 5 or so between the 4 of them. they have a couple of dirty black stains on them. If u still want them i can try and get that stuff off. The 1 in the 1st pik here is bent over, again i can prolly fix that. And also 2 of them have stuff stuck to them. the foamy/rubber black seals that were on them, 2nd Pik

    If u still want them they're yours for $10 + what ever it costs for me to get them to ya :) even if u only need them till u get better ones or get good 1's made or w/e.

    Yeah man I'll take them if thats okay. Swing me a PM, I'll direct deposit or you can COD if you like.

    The little split should be okay I could bury it under the scuff plate.
