Vent window weathersripping

I'm frustrated as hell. I'm trying to install new rubber on my vent windows in my truck. I bought good quality rubber from Dennis Carpenter. It kinks up about an inch and a half when I get to the end. Do I have to cut it to make it fit? See pic.......

You should not need to cut that. Try lubricating the thing to make sure it is going all the way into the channel. Usually, when I install a seal that does that, I will remove it enough to go opposite the way I had originally started. Sometimes that is all it takes.

i always use a stick of zipper ease its real thick so it will not run and keeps moisture from getting under your seals. its normaly used to lubricate zippers on tents and can usualy be found in the sporting goods section.
