      So, as I wind up to start getting serious about doing work on my Q coupe, one of the big items that needs to be addressed is the window scrapers and rubbers.

      35+ years of sunshine have destroyed the passenger side rubbers, not 100% sure I want to go the used route when the youngest rubbers will still be 30 years old.

      Anyone have a source for aftermarket ones, or newer-gen cars that can donate theirs to be adapted?

      I've heard that Highland Quattro is remaking seals. Might be worth a gander.

      I took some off a 2000-2006, approximately, junkyard Passat that worked beautifully. I had to cut the ends with a zip-wheel to fit the various shapes but they fit against the window perfectly.

      Oooh, nice. Those might even still be available new, if I can't find decent junkyard ones around here.
