Why? I ask because I'm using half of a roll of garage door weather stripping and have some pictures to show how I did it.

I didn't want to spend fifty bucks on one from the parts store, so I was hoping to make one. Is the seal to be installed on the hood, or cowl. Many parts stores are showing it on the hood, but the rotted one I have is on the cowl. I was hoping for dimensions to make a replacement. What size garage door seal did you use?

Welcome. And don't forget to seal it to the cab with something, like maybe black RTV, or water will go behind it and get onto the engine.
