I've just replaced both front and rear, and they were a perfect fit - I'll check where I got them when I get home.

I think chris witor sell them but wherever you get them they are very likely to be made by Baines

Chris Witor does the rear early style rear windscreen rubber (no trim, possibly non Sprint) as used in 1850's up to the non HL style in EPDM rubber, so I'm sure it's not Baines.
Others - Baines. My front rubber supplied by MEV took a while to settle in and needed some (lots) of old school sealant before it stopped leaking but that was some years ago now.

From what I have read in the T2000 Register magazine,
Chris commissioned the tooling for the back window seals and has Baines actually using this to produce seals to his specification.

Couldn't find it on their wibsite, so rang direct. Problem is they don't have it listed themselves against the Dolomite - they think the insert strip is PT 11. So, without their part number, they can't give me a price or anything.

Anybody got the Baines part number for the front windscreen rubber?

I'll check my receipt when I get home, they sell it in a roll which does both the front and rear.

I got 2 lots. A 12m roll from Baines costing £22.13 with posting and was part No: PT 11 - I got front and back from Chris Witor @ £5 each + VAT and these are the ones I used.

My rubbers came from Rimmers and supplied to them by Baines.

Unfortunately gRimmer Bros list it under the original PN, and Baines didn't recognize that.

I smell a closed shop; I'm almost certain they used to list it on their own site as I looked following Trust No1's comment on this thread:

https://forum.triumphdolomite.co.uk/vie ... ct#p319268

and was surprised they were only about £20!

Is this the listing you remember? https://coh-baines.co.uk/product/triump ... pe-hd7434/

The title is somewhat confusing, but the description states suitable for the 1300 / 1500 and Toledo (which share the same windscreen surround panel as the Dolomite), so perhaps for a toughened rather than a laminated windscreen? I think I remember discussion on here before, that the two types of screens had different rubbers due to their different thickness's, but that only one type is still made.

I don’t recall it referencing the 2000 as well....surely we don’t share ‘screens with the big saloons, do we???

I only ever managed to find the one part number for ‘screen seals, had it changed with glass type there’d be a new number...
