door weather stripping

Just a quick question, Ive taken off all of the door weather stripping to do body work, Ive got the new weatherstripping. My question is, will it screw up the door alignment if I do all the aligning and painting and then put on the new stripping? Or should I install the new stuff and just mask around it when painting?

Thanks in advance!

hey chad if you didn't take off the doors you shouldn't have any problem with door alignment.if you did take off the doors do your work and then put them back on and align them to where they should be or to where you feel comfortable ,when you put your new weatherstrips back in ,the door will already be in place the only thing is your gonna have new rubber in them so of course they are going to be thicker and fuller than the old ones so there is going to be a little resistance when closing the door ,but nothing that should cause any problems .once you got them installed the will conform to your car and fit much better over time.

fisher is right. you should have no problems. for a professional look, never mask what can be removed and or replaced if you don't have to

You didn't say if you were painting the jams or not, but I'll assume that is why you took off the weatherstripping. I usually paint the jams with everything removed and then after two or three days or longer I'll install the weatherstrip, door panels, etc. This gives the paint a chance to harden up and the weatherstrip won't rub the paintwork and mark it. Most of my projects are long term, so I am in no hurry.
