Common problem with repros. Wrong compound rubber, will not crush
properly even if cross section is correct.

Along these lines, the lower door seals for the TR3 that Moss offers,
649-020, don't seem to
crush at all when in use. About 6 month ago, I put one of the pair on
my passenger door, and when, before, I could
almost just sneeze and the door would shut with a delicate "snick", now
I have to two-hand
slam the door. I worry for my poor 45+ year-old hinges. I've even tried
to "trim the trim" at the
forward part of the door, w/ no better results. Granted, what was there
wasn't much of a seal,
but it sure closed in a very elegant way!
