    Someone asked me for the link to the articulated brush for inner and outer windows at the rear. I cannot find the thread anymore as it might have has a title about something else.

    https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/inner-window-trim-draught-seal-1-metre

    It does not say it but this is the stuff. The base is aluminium which hold steel sections in place which is covered by the material. It means that it can be bent around corners for the rear window and stay flat rather than cutting sections out.

    I was surprised to find this out, but it might be that all such trim is bendable like this.

    So, whomever asked me the question - I was not being rude but scouring my files for the right answer.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi guys,

    I am searching for side window brush like @Rek posted - NLA on link.

    I've got the same situation, I found the rubber T shaped seals but couldn't find the brush, so I've used a 6mm thick felt tape and made the metal angle sections myself out of alloy, still using the bius binding material. Turned out spot on and better than the original if I'm honest.

    It might just be out of stock. I bought a metre of it just last month.

    So I remain confused. Where would be the most reliable source for someone in the US?

    Hmm, I too am confused and searching for a solution to essentially clamp down the rubber (using rivets).

    Use aluminum rivets to attach.

    You need a felt with a taller/flatter bead to cut and bend as well as to rivet to the trim.
