My first one had the flap around the door like a trad which i much prefer and stooped water ingress unless you were marching on a bit. But i do like the gangster roof which you cant tuck down flat behind the seat's and keeps the line of the car looking nice. Glass window of course.

On the second photo (blue car) there is beading on the leading edge of the door; is this attached to the door or the bodywork?

Also,still a bit confused here, are we saying that there is a gap/channel running the length of the door and between the wing and the body tub to allow water away?

On mine , there is body coloured beading in that position.....

The channel in front of the door near the hinges is attached to the bodywork James.

The beading is also fitted to trads. It comes from the bodyshop slotted inside the door panel and I believe it's glued, maybe after the body is mounted on the chassis. I'll check my build photos.

thanks Em and Dave thumbs

I wonder if this would be worth attempting retro-fitting....... ?

Personally, I would say it would be too much of a faff for minimal benefit. Ensuring the seal at the front edge of the door ( that closes onto the scuttle) is plump and in place would be of more benefit. Sticking a very thin neoprene strip on the scuttle so the doorseal closes on it would be best IMHO.

Is it just a shadow on the red one but it looks like it has another channel following the a-pillar across to the top of the bonnet?
