73 weather stripping
#1
Ok i know the roofrail channel has a roofrail weatherstrip channel to body seal,my question is what did they use under the driprails? I know they couldn't have had it together metal to metal with no seal ( seems like that would be one big leak, which i am trying to stop ) i have looked and can't seem to find anything for this. can 3M adhesive be used here to prevent any water from getting in? Thanks for any suggestions

Thanks Scott, I noticed at the bottom the description stated Foam, but not adhesive, meets ASTM D1056 2A3. Material has a skin on all sides. Color is orange-tan. Install with or without adhesive? if with, what would you recommend?

Doesn´t this type of foams helps rust asi it keep the place with humidity after for example, a carwash?

Maybe i just didn´t find the right tape/foam...

I just mounted it with a little silicone on them
