NEW Gas Door Seal Wolfsburg Buses/Trucks   Price: $24 shipped
Now available, Seal for gas filler door on Wolfsburg(55/56) Buses as well as Single Cabs from Barndoor(52-55) on through Post Barndoor 55/56

Nearly unobtainable , always dried up falling apart or completely missing , here is a new option almost identical to the original.

These are made using an original NOS as a pattern. Length and open ends just as original.

The only real difference as can be seen in photos is the original has a "lined" texture on the "inside" edge, My guess is this may have been for glue adhering purposes. This side is what glues to the body lip. Even though its not on the new product, you would never see it anyway once installed.

For good results I suggest letting the seal sit in the sun or similar method for it to soften up a bit just before installation. This will allow for the door to close better and make its impression without too much pressure.
Also I would suggest to scuff the "rounded" side lightly with sand paper to rough the surface a bit for better glue attachment. The rounded side is what glues to the body. Flat side faces out for the door to close against. The opened ends are centered , facing outward, on the hinge side of the opening.

$24 shipped in USA
$34 International
