Re: [DML] Door Weather Stripping



Scot,
I had the same issue with mine where the driver's side was cracked, but the 
passenger side was fine. I don't know if it was DMCH or the original DMC 
that changed it, but the newer design does work better for sealing.

If you are concerned a bit about the looks with the screws showing more, I 
came up with a nice solution. I threw out the old rusted black screws and 
picked up new ones at Lowes. They sell the exact same size of sheet metal 
screws in stainless steel at 5 for a buck. They look nice and wont' rust on 
you!
