    Canopy seal

    Found this D shaped seal which seems to be a good fit for the Nova. I bought a Metre initially just to check the fit, and have now ordered another 6 metres.

    Does it bridge the very large gap on the sides where the canopy rises towards the back of the car as that is generally where the biggest gap that requires bridging is?

    The height of the D section is 19mm, and from what I can feel with my fingers when the canopy is closed the gap is bridged. It also squashes down to a couple of mm so does not appear to prevent the canopy fully closing. Once I get (and fit) the rest of the seal I will report back.

    The best thing I found was sil poxy.

    I think some others have also tried it afterwards & found it does the job.

    Cheers.
