86-88 door seals

Recommended Posts

Has any one had much luck with removing the foam door seals and glue that was used to adhere the inside seals?  What to use or not to?  Tools?  Or just good old elbow grease?  TIA, Matt

I've been told good parts cleaner out of an aerosol can, let it soak for a bit first.

pull the seals off best you can, soak it with a good brake clean let it sit.  it will come right out.  may have to apply second brake clean but works great.  Us the BLACK weather strip adhesive when you go back on.   Or buy the seals from me ours have the tape on them so no glueing

I have tried the brake cleaner with a small scraper and putty knives.  I probably was not letting it sit long enough to do it job.  Just one of those things I hate doing.

 

Thanks for the help!!

If you are going to paint the door, pour Lightning Stripper down into the channel.  Cuts everything out,  down to the metal.  Don't do this unless you are going to repaint the door anyway, because if you do, you get to repaint the whole door anyway.

That's it.  Eats the paint off right down to bare metal.

That stripper is the best stripper I have ever used, but  you must be very careful with it.  It is a liquid and you spray it on with a pump bottle or I have used a two gallon pump sprayer.  Cover up your whole body and wear a face shield and respirator.  Breathing that stuff is like mainlining purple power cleaner.  Tough stuff.

Not sure, but would be great to spray on tractor, let soak and wash off with a garden hose or pressure washer.
