I will see if I can get a photo of the SD markings.

They might be on the bottom though, so now hiding behind some glue.
As I said previously, I have accidentally ordered a spare set of SD seals, so will compare those too when they arrive.

The door weather-stripping I got was Dan Carpenter part number C5ZZ-6520530. They are the goods!

Right... so here is some simply riveting information.
It looks like this debate ends in a TIE.

I got the new Scott Drake door weatherstrips today.
First thing I noticed - completely different material. Much softer. And it seems to change to a more dense rubber at the ends, which have a slight shine to them.


Next thing I noticed is that the Scott Drake label appeared to be stuck over another one, so I peeled it back.

Only part of a label, but if you compare fonts and notice both have "Made in USA" in the bottom right corner... I think it's safe to say that's a Dan Carpenter label.

So it appears there are two types of Drake seals out there. Probably his older stuff is rubbish so he gave up on those.

If you buy Drake weather strips, make sure there is no Scott Drake text moulded into either end of the weather strip and you should be OK.

Right.. well it's like chalk and cheese.
The new weather stripping is much better.

For the record, here is a pic of my old stripping with the Scott Drake moulded into it. This one only has "DRAKE" visible, but the other one had the whole lot.

Avoid weather stripping with the name moulded in!

The carpenter ones were great for me.
You could try some of the rare spares rubber magic to try and soften them up, but mine were pretty good out of the box.
