    Same as the strips behind the back of the rear seats. Vibration isolation?

    I think it is so the fiberglass seat back doesn’t chafe against the metal.

    Hi Barry
    I too am replacing my trunk seal. I seal I have has no bag and is one linear piece (not circular). It does not appear to be cut. I could have gotten it 20 to 30 years ago. It appears to be in good shape. How does it fit in the channel? I tried to see from you pic but to no avail. I have had the car since 1976. I bought from a dealer in Santa Cruz. New drive train thanks to SF Don.
    Just getting the final touches on it so I can drive it again.

    Hi Barry, the trunk pieces are really easy to make, probably one of the more fun parts for me at least.

    The panel that is over the fuel tank doesn’t fit down tight, it rides on the fuel hose. Still need to fix that.
    It seems like the tank is to tall... any thoughts
