I had to go to a Bluebird dealer to get the seal for the door.
Florida Transportation Systems, Inc.
It was not cheap - not is the quality that great... but it does the trick. I have not been able to find the seal elsewhere... but if someone knows a good place - pass it on!

the seal on my bluebird front and rear doors looks like standard automotive door seal that you can buy in rolls from auto parts stores or places like jegs or summit...

I called about rear window rubber for my AmTran I'm trying to paint and was told its all generic, you just cut it and make it yourself??
I'll just go to a glass shop if that's the case. I HATE messing with windows, glass, seals, and all that.
May just panel over the rear windows since I'm such a big fan of deleting stuff with 18ga panels and rivets lol.

those rear windows on busses seem to be a huge source of water intrusion.. a lot of water spray from the highway and then they are sloped just a bit so a lot of water running down the window.. and guess what seems the "joint" in the seal is always made at the bottom... ??? why?? when thats the most likely place for it to leak into the body..

IDK, but paneling over em is getting much more appealing as steel is free for me, and time is limited.
Maybe slap a window ac unit in one side, and something else on the other side? IDK.
