Replacement front door gaskets

Hi All
We need to replace the front bi-fold door gaskets on our Ď94 Bluebird. Does anyone know of a source for replacements? Thanks in advance for any info!
Steve

Central state bus sales is where I used to get parts when I had a bluebird.

Yep. Give them your VIN and a description of what you need. They'll usually look it and get back to you.

What I usually do is get their quote in writing by email, then search online for the part number to see if I can find a better deal.

Called them this morning, they no longer make the bottom gasket but will be shipping out the left and right as soon as they receive the left one from Bluebird. Thanks again for the contact info!

i found all of my door gaskets at mcmaster/carr.
they were not identical but they worked and a fair price for good quality rubber.

when you say bi-fold are you talking folding jacknife door or double-outs?

They’re the folding (in the middle) doors. I didn’t get the part numbers over the phone but I’ll update this post when I can get the part numbers off of the invoice. The right-side gasket was only available in 16’ sections so I’m hoping that I might be able to use it on both sides and return the left-side gasket. I haven’t looked at my door yet to see if there is that much of a size difference between the two.
