My glass guy says they make rear barn door glass rubber seal that is one-piece, much like a windshield rubber. He prefers it. I've never seen it, just the bulk roll type that leaves a gap where the ends meet. Anyone know where/who sells one-piece barn door glass?
I put a set on recently and it made a difference. I used low stick tape to keep inner contact areas from pinching or "rolling over" when closing the door.Then "released" the tape ends allowing the seal to return to its natural position.As stated elsewhere,leave it sit closed for several days.
Well I attempted to rope in my rear barn door glass today; the rubber was exceedingly tight and tore within a couple of inches. I suspect cold weather may have contributed to the failure by making the rubber hard and inflexible. I ordered another set of seals (this is getting expensive) and will try it again with more lubrication and some pre-heating.
And thanks Mark, Krazy Glue bonds the ends together excellently!
