Also; Wolfsburg West for the interior. Have not used them for a bus to date. However. Have for the Type I and their quality and correctness is superior to anything I have seen.

Best rubber I have found is Wolfsburg West. It is NOT WCM. They make their own (have it made). Probably better than original. But it aint cheap.

It has been a very long time (about 11 years) since I've put a Bus back together for restoration purposes after it has gotten a nice new paint job. As if enough hasn't already been spent, I have a long way to go.....especially considering the fact that the two are both Deluxes.
I would like to ask for someone to remind me what the final result of best window and door rubber is for a Split-Screen Bus. I am getting ready to buy a lot of window and door sealing rubber for our '63, '62, and '58 and would rather pay a little bit more if it's worth it. The last time I bought rubber quite a few years ago, West Coast Metric had the best, but I think their quality has diminished. I've already gone through the Wolfsburg West catalogue to figure out their part numbers and prices to make comparison easier.
I am also going to need some new seat covers and pads, and have been told that West Coast Classics' has the best. I'm told that they also have the best interior panels ('62 Grey Graph Paper Style), and I'm trying to decide whether I am going to step up and get a new set for my '62 instead of using the mostly good original set I already have.
I look forward to reading your thoughts and suggestions,
