Hi, I'm new to this forum having just acquired a 1962 Consul Classic 1500 in Light Grey Body and Cream (Roof).

Is it possible to replace the rubber seal around the front quarter lights? If so, any ideas on the best way to remove - the rubber on both sides is perished and almost solid in parts - where can I get replacement rubber - even if I have to shape or cut to shape from some existing material - anyone else done this. Thanks, Andy

Scotts in Oz are worth approaching, although their website doesn't list quarterlight seals for the Classic.

Welcome to the forum btw.
