Hi everyone... considering that is almost imposible to get a 4d rubber ser, what could be the best alternative?

A standar rubber can be adapted? like this one?

that top pic is what they call pinch molding, a lot of the 80's and early 90's cars had it on the edge of metal in the door jambs, it's not a rubber seal. my s-10 blazer has it with the rubber door seal glued to it but the glue eventually comes off Confused as it doesn't stick to the slick vinyl molding that well

not that i can think of, unless you could find a similar car that would have very close seals but IDK and if it were a popular car chances are the 4 drs wouldn't be popular enough to repop seals for them either????Confused

For what's it's worth I have looked and looked for 4DR rubber seals and they occasionally pop up on Ebay, but like anything else rubber, it deteriorates with time. I found an NOS tailgate rubber weatherstripping for my wagon and when it arrived I soaked it in McGuire's Rubber conditioner and it looked great at first, but it's starting to show cracks and wear on certain places where it is squeezed by the tailgate when shut. 

Unfortunately, I have not found anything else (universal) that would work for the doors. Dead

How about a 2dr set and try to adapt?
How terrible it could be?
