hi folks, at the back of the doors at the top how do we finish the door seals for the IVA man. I have the chromed finisher that Pilgrim supply but it looks a little sharp to me, as does the small metal section in the of the rubber seal.

I'll try and get a photo tomorrow to show you where I mean, might make it a little clearer to understand what i'm going on about.

You don't have to finish them, as when the doors shut they're not a contactable edge.

you can buy chrome door trim finnishers from S&J Motors 01257 262881 , but they need a bit of modification to fit

I used the Pilgrim item for sva, without a problem.
They do end up being buried in carpet anyway, so I wouldnt worry. never heard of anyone else having a problem with them

Thanks Kevin, any chance of a piccy, it's not exactly clear which way round / up or backwards they're supposed to fit

the plate with the holes goes in-board and then the plate just 'hooks over' the top of the tube-ey part of the rubber sealing strip. When you are happy with the fit just drill 2 holes and add stainless domehead screws. I counter-sunk mine just to be awkward.

If there's any issues with sharp edges some vinyl trim and double sided carpet tape helped me out. Nothing was an issue but a bit of reassurance steadies the nerves makes the IVA test less stressfull.

sorry guys, still struggling here.

If I am right this is how it fits but it's well contactable and well sharp.

WHY DO I NEED TO STICK SILLY BITS OF CARPET TO EVERYTHING TO PASS AN IVA TEST, I WANT IT RIGHT FIRST TIME !!!!!!!!! AAAARRRRGGGHHHHHH !!!!!!!

If its contactable and sharp....it shouldn't be.

best speak to the factory for their suggestions

I had mine horizontal not vertical like you have it in the picture, also the one you show I had on the other side, you can just see it on this picture. Passed SVA ok so don't think IVA has changed for projections at that point in the car!

This is how I fitted mine, but yours look different to what he supplied me in 2000

Mikes, Tony's and my edge trim finishers all look the same to me, although Tony's obviously came with a distracting maskot.

The S&J items are i think usually used on AKs. I actually bought a pair, as they look very nice, but couldnt work out how to use them on the sumo.
