Installing New Door Rubber

I'm gonna be putting new door rubber on my trucks doors. Got the rubber ... got the BLACK adhesive ... I'm just wondering about removing the old rubber:

Is it necessary to remove all the old adhesive from the door before gluing the new rubber on? And if so, what do you use to get it off?

Thanks.

The more you can remove the better. We use a wheel where I work Known as an "Eraser". First scrape off what you can, then the wheel can be used in any acessable area. It is fast and when used carefully will not harm the paint. The wheel can be used on a drill or a die grinder. You should be able to get one at your local Auto Body Supply store.

Scrape off as much as you can and sometimes paint thinner will soften the rest without harming paint.

Thanks, guys.

An "eraser" wheel sounds great ... I'll definitely look into that one.

I was thinking about WD-40 and a soft wire brush ... I know WD-40 is real good at removing the glue used for tough labels on jars, etc. -- what do you think?

If your trying to save the paint, I wouldnt use a wire brush. If its getting repainted, Id say the wire brush is the way to go.

Like anything else, a good cleaning and a good prep will make your project look better and last longer. I use 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner. I paid $10 for a quart at a recent show.

Try Restoration Specialties at www.restorationspecialties.com. These guys have all kinds of weatherstrip,molding and thousands of clips and mounting brackets. They are very helpful and their catalog is just fun to look at and see how many variations on a weather strip theme Detroit has come up with over the years.

Zowie!!! What a great catalog!

You could even find some rubber baby buggy bumpers in there, eh?

Alan, I may be a little late on this, but 3M makes a Weather Strip Adhesive remover that works great and does not harm the paint. It is also good for removing glue over spray on upholstery and other materials. I gently scrape the rough stuff off with some something I know is not going to damage any painted surface that is going to show, then apply the remover with a rough cloth and let it soak a minute or so and start rubbing. It may take a few repeats, but it will clean up nice. I then use soap and water to really give me a good clean surface to put on the new stuff.
