Does anyone know where I might find a rear deck lid seal kit? Gordon Imports has them back ordered. Anyone have one sitting around?:032: Is there anything that works good in place of an original seal?
Thanks,
Ted Matthews

I couldn't wait any longer either so I used "Comfortseal" It's 3/4"X3/8"X10' "Heavy Density Closed-Cell PVC Vinyl Foam Tape" which I got at my Local Menards store. 2 packs are needed at a cost of $2.59 ea.

The product number is 215H

Believe it or not sometimes the least expensive is just fine. This is one case. What had been for sale was wrong making engine cover hard or impossible to close. Soft seal has some nice non original options. So does JC Whitney.

For some years Hugh was selling something that was made like the original seal but was thicker. This caused the problem Dave is talking about. Back when I was restoring my cars I managed to find some original stuff from somebody and it has been just fine. I don't see any problem with using some aftermarket foam as long as it is closed cell. It may not take the abuse that the original coated stuff could take but it's cheap, available and I would think it would work just fine. Still, I would like this item to be one of those that Hugh has reproduced, at the correct thickness.

That was from Me, John.
Up to Now I have had stock of Original,but is now been sold out.
As in many things I was selling at same price not knowing his was reproduction stuff.
I also get many calls for product when he Backorders stuff (even thou it was listed he never had it, sometimes)I list the amount of Amphicar stock I have in my Parts book, so if you see a low number you better get it before its gone.
On Rear decks seal is not too important, just to keep the metals from hitting each other more tha seal as LOTS of water can get in the lovers anyway..(I have a cover I can set over lovers when parked in Rain storms)
