Searched with no luck. I just received a set of take-off D2 door seals from Will.

Do I need double-sided tape or do they just pop-in? The recipient truck is a '96 D1.

I've never done it but I've been told they just pop in place of the old ones.

x2. I have no first-hand experience but have heard the same thing. You'll probably need to remove some trim and such

I have them on my D1 and yes, all 5 seals fit perfect if you take your time and get the corners in well.

I never put the metal foot trim back on mine after rust repair though, so I am not sure if need to remove those. You do have to remove them on the D2.

the trim doesn't match, but thats no big deal. It compliments my 2 tone exmoor seats anyway.

metal foot trim? yours isn't plastic?

Is there a benefit to D2 seals instead of D1?

They seal better, eliminate the whooshing wind sound coming through your doors.

They're probably whatever you think they are. I haven't looked at them in about 2 years

Yes, they are slightly beefier than the D1 seals.

Exactly. They look the same, only the D2 seals protrude more and seal up the door better.

Yeah you just rip out the old ones and put in the new. A little time in the sun helps, as does a rubber mallet.

This was one of the best things rhat I have done for the truck. Especially when you compare the ease of the job with the benefit gained.

This may seem like an obvious question but I want to be sure of this before I have a go at replacing my door seals with the new set I just bought:

Am I reading this thread correctly? No adhesive or other materials needed to install the replacement seals? They just manually attach to the body? This is my first time doing this so I'm hoping it's self-evident.

If you cut seals in section you will find that one half is like a hose, and other one is a support piece, with a metallic inner nerve.
You must pull them out loosening this support area from a metal flange all arround frame contour.
And inserting new seal by positioning the support groove over frame flange and pushing it.
D1 seals were produced in two different materials, bounded each other. Support area is from trim colour. Beautiful and from another time.
They were perfect when new!

Regards

Remove and replace. That be all you need to do.

I just finished installing the new D2 door seals. It was one of the easiest projects I've done. Doors are harder to close now (that's the idea) and the interior is quieter. This is one of the best $/benefit upgrades I've made. Now to do the same on my other Rover. I encourage other D1 and RRC owners to do the same - you'll appreciate it.

Edit: Will Tillery comes through again! Got a good price on these from him.

Disco on the left, DII in the middle, P38 on the right. I better float now, well as soon as I fix the holes in the floor.

So looking at this picture the P38's may be even better? Are they a fit for the door frames front a rear?

I wouldn't assume they are a perfect fit. The P38's wheelbase is 8" longer than the D1/RRC SWB and some of that difference is probably reflected in the doors. If you have one to measure then check it out. I suppose you can always cut them to fit.

That's what I was looking at when I grabbed these samples. I do not think they are a fit, but I will look at it and hold one up to the other just to verify. I think the sizes and shapes are not going to work.
