This place has them NEW. Not 20 years old, that have been sitting on a shelf and dry rotting!

The dealer gasket would not be the best choice. The 2 I used from a dealer were OVERPRCED and were stiff and dry.

PRP has a BRAND NEW one for like $50

ok guys, I need a favor, apparently PNP only has 2 left and won't be making any more, and I need one, but I can't order it till Thursday, so I am calling "dibs" on one :) the lady said they haven't had anyone order one in awhile so I know the people in this thread haven't ordered yet, she also said that I shouldn't worry about them selling out but I know it's pretty likely, so all I ask is for one of the gaskets, my subaru and its wet floor will thank you for it!

alright i just talked to them at PNP...

now they have been discontinued... also, they told me the price was 89 bucks... so i dunno what to believe...

i asked if they'd be willing to make more... he said that if we did a group buy of 25+ gaskets they would do a special batch... there would also be a large price reduction with a group buy... (he said up to $50 per)

so how many people need gaskets?!?!:rolleyes:

25 is GREAT! I'm sure we can sell them!

These gaskets ALSO fit ALL gen 1 wagons, coupes and sedans....EXCEPT GF. They can work in the GF , but it's tight in the upper L and R corners. (But better than a rotton gasket!)

We better get them, as I'm sure the demand is coming. A leaking front gasket will destroy these cars!

I personally don't need any, as I already bought from them.

maybe we can get a link to this in the for sale area, it probably shouldn't be moved there

I just ordered 1 of the 2 they have left, so there is ONE up for grabs imediatly, I got it for $75 from Toni at ext 212, once again their product number is WCR288

I'm still in for the 2 on the group buy, she said it would take 6-8 weeks to make a new batch

I'm sure someone could buy a few extra and sell on eBay. There are Gen 1 owners not on the forum. Just a thought!

I got mine a couple days ago, these are great quality and nice clean rubber, it would make a great improvement on your 25+year-old car, even if your not leaking (take up your carpet and check)

It can be done at home. You need 2 people though.

AND....cut the old windshield out with a razor blade. Don't try to remove it with the old gasket intact. You will crack the glass!

To install, use a greased rope in the grove and pull from the inside, while someone pushes from the outside.
