1st gen door weather stripping

Post by ditdater on Sun Mar 13, 2016 10:36 am

any reviews on best fitting/mounting door weatherstripping . I heard steel brand may be a bit harder to install and doors don't shut well ,even installed properly (maybe too thick)

Steele rubber is a quality product. Yes it is thick, but I adjusted the door latches and made it work afterward. Use the 3m weatherstrip adhesive and be as neat as you can, try not to make a mess.

Sometimes you have to sort of train them. Don't force them all at once. bring it in snug and use a strap or something to hold door overnite for example. Worked for me anyway.
