Where to find older Targa top seals?

Post by mattrf » Mon Aug 16, 2010 9:13 pm

I have a 1975 Targa and when I purchased the car it was very quiet on at fast speeds but I got the bright idea to replace the front targa seal since it looked really warn.
I purchased a new seal from Parts Heaven and installed it but the top does not sit as low and it is very noisy, I don’t think it was the exact right seal for the car.
I remember reading in the Panorama I think over a year ago about someone that if you needed the exact right targa seal to contact but I cannot find the article in all my old magazines.
Does anyone know who this person is and have the contact info or know someplace I could get the right seal for my car?
Thanks.

I would try Sunset Imports.

Then I would try Pelican Parts.

Try Gabe at SGS Motorsports (used to be Strasse). He worked for Automotion for many years and should know what you want.
