PHOTO OF THE WEEK—TRF'S FUZZY INNER DOOR WAIST SEALS

 

I drove over to a local manufacturer this morning to pick up a fresh batch of fuzzy inner door waist seals for TR4, TR4A, TR250 and TR6. We'll post some pictures so you can take a look if you like. Until a few years ago, we had these made through a different company, but one day a batch came in and the quality was not up to snuff. We were advised the correct material was no longer available and that nothing could be done to supply a better looking fuzzy seal. Of course Charles was having none of that. John Swauger was still here at the time and I remember working with him to find a better material. After sourcing the material, we suggested our regular supplier start using it, but they felt it was too expensive. So John took some samples over to the manufacturer in Blairsville and they've been making them for us ever since. TRF's seals are nice and fuzzy, they also have a shiny edge on the top side. I've seen samples of what other suppliers are selling these days. They may be a few dollars cheaper, but the fuzz is unappealing and the shiny edge is on the bottom. These may seem like small details, but the small details were always important to Charles. I think that's why TRF has been successful over the years and we continue to keep the small details in mind when we source our parts.
