Re: [T3] rear hatch seal

Hey Peter- 

I have not done this successfully, but I do have one wacky idea.  The Karmann 
Ghia front seal looks similar in configuration to the Ghia decklid seal.  
Tomorrow I can go sneak a peek at my Ghia and see if it is at all possible to 
stick one on the other... maybe the catalog got it off a bit... 

... or maybe someone who's done this on a T3 will respond soon and make this 
comment seem useless... :-) 

Take care,
