Does anyone have a section of navy (dark blue) plastic & rubber windlace
(door gasket) on a parts car or surplus that I could buy?  This was fitted
to certain colors of '73 and up MGB's. 

I just installed windlace around the driver's door opening of my '73 B GT.
I bought it from the Roadster Factory, and was pleased that they had it in
navy colored plastic as originally fitted to my car.  When I got the part,
it looked sort of "fat" compared to the old ones (the black rubber gasket

Well, I installed it and it was not a pleasant job.  The problem is that
when I go to shut the door, it will barely close!  My initial observation of
it being too fat were correct.  My local MG restoration shop owner suggested
splicing in a section of replacement windlace and retaining most of my
existing windlace.     
Thank you.
