Re: [DML] Who has the best weather seals?



Since most people have only replaced their weather seals once (or never), 
it's hard to compare the different ones. So just order from your favorite 
vendor.

When replacing, you first need to completely remove the old ones and the 
adhesive. Some 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner works great for this. 
Once the surfaces are nice and clean, you can then glue on the 
replacements. I used 3M Super Weather Strip Adhesive (black). Just follow 
the directions on the box and take your time. I would suggest starting on 
the passenger side. That way by the time you start on the drivers side, you 
will have learned a few things. And since you see the drivers side the 
most, you want it to look the best. :)
