GT tailgate upper seal replacement

Post by David Girvin » Fri Jan 12, 2018 2:33 pm

I need to replace the tailgate seal upper on my car as it is a bit "crusty". Has anyone any experience of doing this and what is involved also does the tailgate need to be removed. Thanks David

They said it couldn't be done so I didn't do it.

Hi David
Did both the seals on mine (a 1968 GT) a few months ago took the tailgate off and did it in the house laid on an old sheet on the floor. Not too bad a job, best oiling the self taping screws the day before. Takes a bit of time but I was in no hurry.
