Installation of Heater Box Covers

Getting ready to install new heater box covers (under-dash & under hood) in my 1964 Impala. Would the "3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive" black part # 08008 work ok for the foam/rubber seals? Thanks in advance..

The under the hood piece used "strip caulk" like 3M 08578. At least that is what the A bodies used and that should be the same. I can check at work, I have a 64 Impala there.

Available here

To answer your question if you needed to glue the foam yes it the black weatherstrip adhesive would work great. But DOES it need to be glued? I am not sure but I don't think it does nor do you want it to be glued in. I think you just put it in place and bolt it up.

Brian is correct, glue is not needed, just bolt it up. If you glue it you will be cursing yourself for doing it if and when you must remove it for anything.

LOL, I went and looked at the 63 Impala we have in the shop and there is a rubber gasket on the one in the engine compartment!

But don't glue it in, just stick in and run the bolts thru it.

So, If I read you correctly, I don't want to glue either the interior or under hood boxes? Just bolt the boxes up with the rubber/foam seals, correct?
