Hello all. My name is Dean Fuller and currently reside in northeast Mississippi ( Columbus / Starkville ) . I have ALWAYS been a car / motorcycle guy and recently have gotten very interested in micro cars. My father was military and we lived in Europe in the 1960's where he owned a Messerschmitt KR200. It was our only car at the time and there was 5 of us. I would sit on my fathers lap as he drove. My mother sat in the rear next to my older brother and held my little brother in her arms. I have always wanted a Messerschmitt and things just grew from there.
I have a 1970 Subaru 360 sedan, a 1957 Isetta 300 and a 1955 Messerschmitt KR175...all are projects. The Subaru is mostly painted now and starting re assembly. Was a very solid , non rust car. I am in need of rubbers for the 360 sedan. Windshield seal, door seals and rear window seals. I read somewhere there are door seals from an older Ford truck that work ?? The rear side windows can use a minivan seal ??? Any help would be very much appreciated.

More pics of the sedan. I used 2014 Toyota quicksand color. I am happy with it so far...no metallic. Urethane single stage.

I have the windshield gasket that holds the chrome strip. It is not a connected loop, just a length of rubber seal which is the correct profile matched to the original. It's $80.00 plus shipping. $12.00 +-
Looks like a great 360 to start with. Nice paint too. I'm also accepting pre orders for pistons if you need them.
