Does anyone know if there are local produced rubbers for windows and doors?

No, you can use Pro Auto rubbers for the front and back windows but they are terrible. Rather import the ones from ISP West or similar
If it's too low, you're too old :twisted:

I wouldn't say all Pro Auto's rubbers are terrible. Some of their batches are nice and soft whereas others are more difficult to work with.

I bought some imported windscreen rubbers and ended up buying a Pro rubber one and worked 100% but that's just what I found.Time will tell.
