Where's the best place to get front and rear screen rubbers, it's a 1980 Sprint and it's got the beads in the rubbers.

What were they like to fit and are they a good fit?

There was something some time ago about screen rubbers but I can't find the post now, and I remember someone coming highly recommended.

I got front and rear rubbers with the chrome infill strips from Rimmers too. Fitted fine and don't leak, but I did use the black screen sealer stuff (Arbomast).

They were easy to fit (well, as easy as any is). Years ago rimmers (and others) had a duff batch but I'm betting they're long gone. These were a perfect fit. The in-fill makes your thumbs hurt without the right tool. For the actual fitting I used a thin steel-renforced washing line and a gentle circular motion (if you just yank it you'll tear rubber).

You can buy from Baines direct from their website, they are the people who supply Rimmers and most others

Unless you're after an early style rear rubber (no bright trim insert) in EPDM from Chris Witor, then Baines is it.
End of.
