What is the length of each strip? Can they be ordered longer? Might want to use them to seal up the rock issue in the rear wheel well /rocker arm area.

Cheers

Hmmm...Not sure if that will work, but tell me what length you need and I will see if I can get you to your dimensions.

Great idea but fortunately or unfortunately "MY VETTE DOESN'T GET WET"!!! My vette isn't my daily driver and living in Southern California where it's mostly always sunny, I don't have to drive my vette when it rains. Then I use a damp micro-fiber cloth with NXT spray wax when I put it away for the night. But if I did get it wet I would buy the seals. With the amount of dust that collects on the tail of the vette after a short drive and with the water drip it could become a mess. Then some area's have hard water and it would eventually make a permanent stain or color variance. GREAT IDEA!!!!!

Default They work!

Arrived yesterday, put on last night. Look fine and they WORK, No more drip!!! Once you dry out the light well, it stays dry. Another DOH!, why didn't I think of this.
Money well spent with minimal corvette tax, IMHO.

Do I get a Bassomatic 2000 with it?

Sounds like a great idea - I may have to get a set.

Not sure what a bassomatic is But I do know you will be very satisfied with the Seals.

For those of you that don't use a leaf blower or compressed air, this product will most likely be what you want.
