In the 60's when I was and engineer at ford the procedure was to spray the adhesive on the contact surface and let it dry. The weather strips were laid out on a cardboard form that held them next to each other tight so there was no overspray. Adhesive was applied to the door with a brush tip flow gun from a pump on a 55 gallon drum. the adhesive on the door was thin and had a very short flash time. the weather strips were then applied to the doors. It was similar to the normal contact cement procedure where the adhesive was dry enough that your finger wouldn't get wet when you touched it just had a small sticky feel. The home brew adhesive for fixing weather strips was a mixture of the black normal adhesive and the yellow contact cement. too much adhesive will tend to crystalize as it ages and not hold the weather strips when you had rain or snow melt water on the weather strips that freeze and the weather strip comes off when you open a door.

That's a great video but what if you need to remove or replace your weather stripping ? I have accidentally torn my weather strip, what a freaking mess to clean up.
I am experimenting with something called "ShooGloo". It seems to hold really well but can come off if needed, similar to silicone.
I need to get around to doing some tests lol like I don't have enough projects.

|53 3100||Thank you Thank you! I'll give that a try. I never could figure out why that was the only product 3M could not figure out how to make. That always drives me nuts, the package gives you a whole page on how not to kill yourself with it, but says nothing about how to use it.|

The 3M is good stuff, it must be applied correctly to work. It works very much like contact cement.
This explains it perfectly was going to write this but this is much better
This past winter re replaced the window felts in my coupe. I was able to remove the old felt easily because I did not use the steps seen in this video.
When I used the 3M the first time, my thinking was run a bead and it will set ......... nothing could be further from the truth. There were many areas the 3M never cured, it was still soft.... mind you 8 years later
Lucky for me because it was easy to remove, had it been on a door and not mounted in a metal channel it would have been one mess.
And the most amazing thing about the whole deal! The direction are not found on the tube or box
But I will say this I understand why, watching the video, how would anyone write that out .. answer you cannot.
Forgot to mention about 15 - 20 mins is the dying time after both pieces have the 3M applied. Then a wet skim coat and bond things together. Works very easy once you have done it... The video nails it exactly follow it you will not regret doing that.

Glue for weatherstripping
Does anyone have any good ideas for weatherstripping glue that works?I've tried the black 3M weatherstripping glue and their emblem glue which actually seemed to work better. I would like to put the weatherstripping on my doors but I need a glue that will work 100% for sure because I need to take the doors off to put them one.
