door weatherstrip channel
#1
I'm repairing my doors and the channel on the bottom (for weatherstip) to sit in is pretty rough, some edges are gone.  Is this channel/edge what holds seal in place or do you also use adhesive?  I'm looking at a couple replacement doors that the channel is in better condition, just don't know if it's worth the trouble (removing fenders and replacing doors).  I tried to add a few pics but couldn't get them to upload.
Thanks
Bob

Bob,
There was adhesive there also. I think the wavy flange that wraps around the rubber was there to help with gravity. The adhesive I use is 3-M weatherstrip adhesive. Put masking tape on both sides when you apply the adhesive to keep from getting on the paint where you do not want it.
Test fit it before adhesive and take your time.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

does anyone know if you can purchase just the channel (bottom of door) and possibly remove existing channel pop rivet new ones on?
Thanks
Bob
