Anyone got some tips and tricks for replacing the trunk weatherstripping on a 2nd Gen Camaro?
Just did mine two days ago. Very simple. Pull out old, install new. Depending on if your old one was sealed in you may have more clean up of the old residue adhesive. You can use 3M weatherstrip adhesive to adhere the new one if you want. I chose not to for now.
Good luck getting the deck lid to close after installing the new seal
I'll also add that you should tape around the seal so when glue squeze's out it doesn't get on your new paint job. If you try to wipe it off it'll smear.Don't ask me how I know!! And try to make it about an inch longer, don't cut it to the right leungh. Spelled wrong, I know.
Good tips...I really like this forum
Make sure it's facing the correct way. Yes I have seen people install them backwards. I did mine in 1985 with GM WS and it has not shrunk where it's cut.
Hey guys, the install went well. Thanks again for all the advice. Hardest part was getting the 40+ yr old adhesive out of the channel. Only took a quick adjustment of the trunk latch to get her to close.
Check that again after 30 days or so once the seal gets settled in so you know its closing tight
I am getting ready to do my door seals in the next week or so
Ahh..good point. Maybe I can convince one of my kids to climb in the trunk and look for any light shining in
