Is there a reason for the brush seal to be curved. Just got one from Moss and am trying to figure out how to straighten it on installing it on my door cap. Thanks

You mean curved length wise? If so no - maybe bent in shipping. Sandwich it between a couple of lengths of timber with weight on top (or similar). Stapling it to the door cap should also straighten it if you're in a hurry.

Convertible: CKD 11/66 first registered 8/5/67. Owned since 3/77. 90% original sheet metal. 18GB +40 balanced with almost all new internals. Peter Burgess big valve fast road head. Piper 285. Fidanza FW. Basil's followers and pushrods. TR7clutch. TT exhaust. ARP everywhere. 123 ign. Needham 4synchro c/r box.. Stock rebuilt/replaced suspension. Superpro bushes. New brakes all round including all pipes in SS flex. Interior redone. CAMS approved roll bar and side bars. Lots more. Hybrid of o/e and show/fast road car. Not for sale - it's my toy!

GT: UK car built/sold December '78. Stripped back to bare shell (with extensive bodywork to come). Powered by 'worked' Rover 5 litre V8 (ex TVR Chimera) with efi. T5 box. FC IFS. CCE rear attached to Salisbury axle with Quaife. And a whole lot more to yet to come. Stealth is the word.

They can become bowed in shipping or storage ....they are quite pliable ...just use a soft hammer to make them straight with the capping face ....manipulate them in line horizontally as you install on the cap ...or use a straight edge to force it up to another straight edge for the horizontal plain.....either staple or use tacks as you go .... I used glue ( shoe glue ) the weighted it overnight on the capping to minimize the amount of fixings ... check the position of the door cap in relation to the top of the door edge first !....because the aluminium edge on the seal looks out of place if it isn't parallel with the top edge of the door fact it looks pox
