    My driver side had a couple rips, so I ordered a replacement from JEGS, who offered individual sides, not a pair. I definitely ordered the correct part number, but it came in as a passenger side. Returned that, ordered the same from Summit, same deal.
    So I contacted the supplier for both, Precision Replacement Parts, and told them my issue. They asked that I send a photo of the new and the old (which I had kept), and the part numbers on the bag. Apparently they mis-marked many of the bags, they apologized, and said they will be sending the correct part ASAP.
    Sooo...
    Correct part number listing: 0
    Customer service: 10

    Keep me posted on how it fits, I don't quite care for the ones on my Sprint. Way too puffy.

    So I received a set for both sides from the manufacturer today, and the issue is the same- the bags are marked the opposite of what's in them. But I did a little sleuthing, and found some molding marks on the glue-side of the seals. Those also are marked wrong- the left (driver) side is stamped 'R', and vice versa. But at least I got the driver side seal I needed.

    I contacted the manufacturer, and here's their response:
    I’m guessing the molds got marked incorrectly when we made this part years ago and we usually sell these as pairs and no one has said anything
    I appreciate you sending the photos and letting me know.


    So if you only need a single seal from this manufacturer (Precision Replacement Parts, the only supplier I found that sold singles), then order the opposite of what they list. Their part number for a '64-'65 driver's LEFT side would be DWR 2311 60, passenger RIGHT side would be DWL 2311 60. Unless they re-label all their bags.....
    But hats off to them for great customer service.

    Well, they're correct if you look at them incorrectly, right?? :confused: Or maybe the Polish way, everything is from the front looking back!! :eek:;)

    The labels say they're made in Thailand, so maybe over there the driver is on the right??
    And to answer your question, yes, they're pretty puffy too; I had to slam the crap out of the door to get it to shut, but it should settle down in a while.
