In Reply to: Any tips for door bottom gasket install? posted by Tim Collins on August 30, 2001 at 17:46:54:

while pushing up on the new molding. Make sure the ends are aligned where you want them, it's hard to move once it is installed. Throughly clean the area and touch up any paint or rusty spots. The bottom of the doors drain right onto the molding so the old ones will be all rusty and will probably break when you remove them. The rust is usually contained in the molding as a metal stiffener is used to give the molding strength. Hope this helps ya!

Gonna replace the drivers side one soon, the little rubber strip that goes at the bottom of the door... any tips or tricks to this install from anyone who's been there?

Thanks.
