Door waterproofing
#1
So with my stripped interior I have removed the door cards and the grey foam behind them. Bad idea. Turns out the grey foam is to stop water splashing off the window regulator and into the car when it rains.

I am reluctant to spend £30 a side for two sheets of foam from pug. What can people reccomend? I don't think I can bang a sheet of plastic or carbon over as I still have the window regulators and they sit proud.

All suggestions welcome. Ta

I often replace this stuff in cars with this problem...my pikey fix...go to a scrapyard, and remove the stuff from other cars (all cars have it) and just cut it up / re use in the 306, as the 306 has tiny bits anyway...just use sealant glue around the outside, and its good as new Smile

That's annoying! Never thought about that when I sound-proofed so my cloud 9 will be sodden!

I seemed to get a bit of water now and again on the bottom seal on the drivers side after washing the car. Today I replaced the weather curtin with bitumen backed roofing membrane.

Ben, what thickness cloud9 did you use? I think the stuff I got is around 12mm and I can't get the door cards to go on.
