Very interesting, guys...
So, it sounds like :
1- the body from drivers to passenger side around fire wall is as pictured in the diagram (and pics of 1046) - both rubber seal and aluminum trim together
2- the first 8 inches or so on the lower body from the front to the latching plate is just aluminum trim and no rubber seal
3- the lower body from over the arches to the rear is EITHER a) rubber seal with no aluminum trim OR b) just aluminum trim and no rubber seal
4- the side edges of the gullwings have only rubber seal except for arch sections which have nothing.
So, did I get it right?
1-3 sound good but I'm confused with #4. Assuming the 'gullwings' are the main rear body sections, I see how their inner edges have seals which contact the steel spine they hinge from. How many separate rubber seals are on each rear gullwing? I'd guess 3 separate pieces - one long piece against the spine and 2 shorter pieces along the outboard (opposite) edge, split by the wheel arch - but that could easily be wrong!
