    I have a 1971 Mercury Monterey Wagon. I have been searching for new door seals that don't cost a ton. I succeeded by finding McMaster-Carr. They are an industrial supplier, but they seem to have everything.

    This is the link to what I bought. https://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/123/3524/=19dwvrr

    This is the link to the video I made about.



    Please go take a look.. Much appreciated.

    I feel a DUH! moment coming on... :slap: I've ordered stuff from them before, not for cars, but for other projects... great company, smooth and quick ordering and good customer service, and I didn't even think to look for stuff like door seals...
    Thanks for reminding me of McMaster-Carr! :D

    Geno, you remind me of a long-lost friend of the family!

    Yeah, places like McMaster-Carr, Fastenal, etc., have automotive materials and fasteners. Of course, you have to buy by the dozen/gross/yard/etc., but if two or .ore get in on one order, it could pay off for all.
