Basic Steps for Weatherstrip Installation

  1. Unwrap the rubber, straighten it out and lay it in the sun for a few minutes if possible. This will make the weatherstrip soft and will take out the wrinkles.
  2. Clean the surface you will be applying the weatherstrip to, removing all wax and dirt.
  3. Attach each end of the weatherstrip and glue down approximately 6 inches. This will keep from stretching the rubber too far one way or the other.
  4. Make sure the weatherstrip is aligned properly.
  5. Apply a tape that will not ruin your paint, just outside of the area the weatherstrip is being applied to. This will allow you to keep glue off of the paint where you don't want it. We recommend 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive 08008 (Black) or equivalent. (Part number M1020 for $7.50 in our catalog.) Apply according to manufacturers instructions.
  6. Tape across the weather strip about every 12 inches to keep secure until adhesive is dry.
