Hello Folks, Kurt, left you a message at the office. I have an appointment with a custom extrusion company here in Houston next week who specializes in this kinda of "short run" stuff and has done a TON of custom seal work for the vintage aircraft industry. He is also an "old car" enthusiast. Please, please send all your pictures and whatever helps. In particular, there is a CAD drawing here on the forum and a couple of pictures i will need in a larger file. Aside that, i'll take the truck over to him next week. Your help would greatly be appreciated. Please email that directly jim.keller@houstonpartyboats.com or give me a call. 281 334 3400

Count me in for a set... just got a 65 FJ45 from my grandfather (original owner) and mine are as deteriorated as they can get. Been browsing the internet for hours and stumbled across this post.

I will measure up my needs possibly tomorrow when I get back out to the ranch. These efforts are appreciated by everyone.

Were you driving North on Highway 1 near Castroville this last Saturday?...swear I saw the rig in your Avatar rolling along with a green tarp over the bed. Wife even spotted the truck.

Kurt, to answer your question, I'm not sure which size. I will need a set for my 67 FJ45, and my 83 HJ47, but I haven't done a lot of research to see what is available and what I will actually need.

Cyclosteve..... No sir.. was not me. This poor girl has been sitting on the ranch for the last 13 years on the "Project Someday" list!

CruiserOutfit... I measured the vertical side that is closest to the roll up window and mine appear to be the 16" version (assuming I measured correctly)

Hi Kurt
If its not too late, please put me down for a couple of sets of the long bug catcher seals. I just picked a 1964 Fixed Top LWB on the weekend :)

Hey Kurt, my doors are from a bone stock 1965 one family truck. (One of the last I believe with the vent in the windshield) hope this helps. They are thick band at the top and the wings are the short ones.

It's been a long time since I have checked in here. I am in need of a set. I will let you know size when I get home on Monday. My best guess is a short. Late 1965 lwb
