Hey Johnno, correct me if i am wrong, but the rubber tube in numnuts pic, is designed to compress so the door closes smooth, but tuff enough to protect the cables inside and stop them pinching. Can you buy that rubber aftermarket ?

I looked at lots of cars and the only rubbers that I found that were long enough to suit the way Bedford doors open, were on the rear lift up doors on vans.
I tried to buy new, but didn't find anyone to sell them, every wrecker I went to refused to sell them to me unless I bought a complete power window set up,
eventually one wrecker told me to go to U-Pull-it and help my self.  (not sure if you have anything like U-pull-it in other cities) they charge $2 to get in, you remove the parts from their cars yourself and they charge you on the way out, very good for small bits like this  ;)  ;)

u-pull-it  is called pick a part (nick a part) here, same deal, $2 and you remove it. problem with here is some of their prices are up to wreckers prices and they charge extra for everything, example you get a brake caliper and it has the pads in it, they will charge you extra for them even if they are stuffed (sometimes they are handy to take to parts store to match them up), but yeah, bulbs, wiring, bolts ... is all charged

I actually have some of those connector things, I was going to put them on the custom van but had to many wires for them, they come in 3 and 4 prong
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"
