Default 1988 Mustang GT Door Weather Stripping

Im replacing the sunroof and door weatherstripping on my '88 GT. The car is in storage right now but I was wondering if anybody knew if i need to use an adhesive of some sort when I install the door weatherstripping. I know some of the older mustangs used a 3M adhesive of some sort... I think its just simply pulling the old stuff out and work the new stuff in. Or am I wrong?

Yes, its Weatherstripping 3M Adhesive.. old and even the newer cars still use it. You can use a rag and warm water to get the old stuff off. If you don't use the adhesive, the strip will just fall off and it'll start from the top. Gotta love gravity.

When I did both of my doors, I assued that the fluid stuff that was already in the weatherstripping was some sort of adhesive. Am I wrong? It was a dark gray color and is inside the part that attaches to the metal. :?:

you can if you want to, but from what i understand most weather stripping has metal in the inside that pinches itself to the door deals. I put new door and trunk stripping in my 90 and its worked just fine without the adhesive, but then again whose to say that it wont start falling in time.

Just went into my storage room and there is metal in the stripping. I think ill still use some 3M adhesive on it just to be safe. And a side note, man it smells really bad in my storage. Ive got door and sunroof weatherstripping in there. Smells like a tire plant.

let me ask you a question. Does your sunroof sit completely flush with the roof of the car? mine sticks up aout 1/4 an inch about and it annoys the heck out of me. ive got a weather stripping around the glass itself and around the cutout in the roof just curious as to how your fits, and if you have 2 weather strips or just one.

Mine didn't have adhesive at all, and the new ones were installed without it. If you feel more confident with using the adhesive, then go for it. All I know is the new weatherstripping was so tight in going on, if there was any adhesive it would've been squeezed out by the rail it sits on.

The original sunroof stripping that's on the car now sits flush with the top of the car. There should be 2 peices. One for the glass and one for the body. Dont know how the new stuff fits. To cold out to work on it in the shed.
