Fender Seals...Am I the only one with this problem?
 
I have a 64 bird. When I removed the front fenders I found the rubber splash/mud seals/rubber in very bad shape. No problem, i've done a few stangs, easy fix, right? Wrong!!! I can find these anywhere. Help me please...What are you doing to solve this problem? Am I missing something? It's rubber, it goes bad, and NO after market part replacement for it, I can't believe i'm the only one... Unless, I have a special car, that has these piecies and no other Tbird has them. If so, I'm taking bids on this rare beauty. Just kidding, but really, any help would be grewat. Thanks...

Hi,

I have a 62 and all my seals were totally shot, I have never seen them for sale. I just went and got some rubber of the same/similar thickness, cut to match against what was left of the old rubber and attached back on. Looks OK and better than no rubber seals when running through water and mud.

Where did you buy the rubber, and what did you use to cut it?

Rubber
 
Hi,

I live in Australia, we have a rubber place all over (Clark Rubber) and I just purchased rubber sheets and cut to size and shape using scissors - should be easy to source in the US?

best of Luck Graeme

Try a good plumbing supply, Heavy duty shower pan liner or thin mud flaps from a tracker trailer
