I ordered the fixed window seals and side & rear door weather-strips this time.

~ The rear fixed window seals and locking beads went in as expected... (Like trying baptise a cat! Mad ) Frustrating as hell, but you just have to work them slow. Awesome tight fit when finish and seal great!

~ The barn-door weather-strips were a bit tricky. But after getting them in place and the holding tabs on the top & bottoms of the left doors attached I taped the weather-strips in place first for better control and then remove one piece of tape at a time, applying the adhesive then re-taping and it all fit well. Afterwards I added more tape just to make sure nothing came loose while drying over night with the doors open. ("FYI:" Never close the doors until adhesive is totally dry!)....

I used: "3M Black Super Weatherstrip and Gasket Adhesive" (Good stuff!)

Over all very happy with the their products!

* Next order will be the windshield and front doors.

Getting a real good lock strip install tool makes that fixed window install easier but it is still wise to double or triple tape the area in the corners to protect the paint if it slips out on ya. After getting the door seals fitted and holes for the metal tabs ready to go , either with pop rivets or sheet metal screws, I lay the seals out on a sheet of plywood. Using a box of latex gloves I put a layer of the 3M adhesive on the door and the gasket separately. Let it tack up and then carefully place the gasket to the door. Have to admit though it is easier with the doors off and laying down. It sticks almost instantly this way and you don't want to mess up much. Still used the tape some to make sure it didn't move in some of the spots the adhesive was thicker. Was 6 years ago so I'm surely not remembering everything.

Well, pulled all the tape this morning and closed the doors. Yep, one happy camper here! Nice fit and seal...

Next month I'll do the front doors weatherstrips, window fuzzies, channels and windshield... cheers
