I'm not knocking this in any way, but i'm pretty sure that replacement of the front rubbers means drilling out the rivet that holds the top of the 1/4 light frame in place, so it would be nice to have a supply of these rivets available too!

Thanks for everyone's input here, I am still looking for a way of having these reproduced.

The original tooling was going to be too much for the club to have made so I am looking in to alternative means as there is obviously a demand for them.

It is not the same part, but they did achieve it:

The Stag Owners Club Tooling Fund invests heavily in remanufacture; they have several projects which used the equivalent of total TDC funds and more!

Off topic, but I do like the idea of the SOC quality 'tick mark' scheme, and judging by the number of posts here and on Facebook asking 'is part x any good?' that it perhaps would not be a bad move for TDC to consider a quality approval system?

As per previous point James I've had a pair of NOS front Quarter light Rubbers ever since I completed my car 5 years ago. I haven't fitted them as I've been trying to locate the right tool & rivet to take out & replace the rivet.

If anyone has any ideas on this fire away....

What's wrong with a stainless steel round head solid rivet and a Bristol spanner?

Hello everybody.
what news of the progress in Quarterlight Rubbers?

I need 4 front and 4 rear of them.

Are there any suggestions for any alternatives?

Thank you for your response.
Do you mean the part number 904490?
Or the part number 717666?

Sorry, my mistake, assumed you are talking about 808956/7 and the T2000 807708/9. Now, what was that thing about assumptions..?

Nonsense.I was confused.I thought that they could do the job.

I'm talking about Front and Rear Quarterlight Rubbers of a Triumph Dolomite 1850-Sprint of course.

Are you sure that T2000 807708/9 is suitable?

are the T2000 707019/20 suitable for the 2 rear Quarterlight Rubbers?

If not , what about the rear Quarterlight Rubbers?

You're not alone in asking, for there is many a thread on just this subject with a few thoughts and ideas.

Personally, I can't guarantee success with any idea yet, as whilst one seal is getting to the point of needing replacing, the rest on my Sprint are in good condition, so all is theoretical. I've read that the T2000 seals are very similar to Dolomite's but just a bit bigger. So if that is true, then taking a T2000 seal and carefully cutting sections out to make it the right size and then glueing it back together seem an option. Glue and seals are not that bad an idea, have a read here for a bit of advice from Seals Direct.

You're welcome. There are some links in my text, the colour scheme for hyperlinks on this board is almost indistinguishable from the normal text but I can't get out of what is normally a good habit!
