    e30 hood seals

    I need help from the guys doing full restorations or have installed newer hood seals. I want to buy it new in prep to painting the car. Online there seems to be talk about the original 1 piece being changed out for 3 pieces. I have a 91 with the larger 1-piece. ETK sees to have the following and all seems available from BMW/aftermarket.

    Fender diagram has: 51711933209 requiring 1 per side. This looks to be a shorter seal. When I installed on the car to see if it seals, added phone camera on the inside and no light shining through from the outside along the fender/hood.
    Hood diagram has 51711933992 (1520mm) and 51711919961 (3020mm). Looking online, it looks like the older one I have installed. The longer ones looks to be on backorder from a few sites. I would need to order the shorter as I have the new fender parts.

    Is the norm to get the shorter one for the windshield area and the 2 fenders ones? Is there a issue using the 3 piece with water getting in where the meet up on either side?

    I can post pics for those in the same predicament.
