I was going thru my rubber glazing seals today getting ready for a new windshield and putting windows back in my B. It is a 69, but probably doesn’t matter in this instance.
I came across two of these today. I tried putting the number into moss, 402-225 with no luck. It is curved in the picture, but I’m sure that is just cause of how it was stored. I think it is the rubber piece at the bottom of the window in the roll up assembly, but not sure. That assembly is not readily available to me at the moment, so can’t check on it. Can any one tell me if I am correct?

I also apparently bought the bottom frame to body seal a few years ago. then I bought the rubber seal kit for painting. Somehow when I acquired a couple of MG
S last year for $400, two more came with them. So I have four of those seals in the shop, only need one! I’ll be putting those on the buy sell page soon.

thanks for your help.

That was quick Ken.

There isn’t a #41 in the new catalogue. That is the correct number, the 27H8705M, but the legs on the sides are a bit bigger than the original on the car, (the channel is deeper) they would stick out past the chrome trim further. Plus it is a bit shorter by about an inch and half. The two corners would be really hard to make, especially the bottom one. How in the heck did they get that to work.

I was thinking more of the lines of #5 in the picture. But the numbers don’t match up.

Charlie,
Here is a pic of the profile. It is just a narrow channel to fit over glass

Gary,

I bought two of those for the 1/4 lights in my car. I tired and tried and tried to get it the glass back in the frame with it in place on the glass... Even used a rubber mallet a one point!!! It's just too thick. Here is my opinion of that rubber:

That shit don't fit!!! LOL thumbs down

Throw them in the trash and look elsewhere....

It could be the rubbers for the glass holders, although seems a bit to thick.

1968 MGB Purchased already dis-assembled but which is largely back together so I'm a lot less ignorant.

Paul. My feelings exactly. An how would you ever get it to bend around the corners?

Chris, that was my first thought. But the moss catalogue has a different part number for them.
