If you want to spend a couple of hours on your 'Stang & achieve blot, try and slip the w'strip into the stainless verticle mould on the rear of your door glass.I'm using genuine Fomoco strips & maybe thats the problem,there a bloody tight fit.I greased the moulds with vasoline,(petroleum jelly) & get it 3/4 the way in & thats it.Apart from leaving the w'strips in our hot sun for a couple of day's my next step is to fire the gas-axe & melt em in,"G"!Any tip's?

I totally misread your post

If at first you don't succeed , find a bigger hammer

please drop me a line. I replaced one of them in my '69 coupe (note the one). Hard as I tried, I could never get the passenger side in, and ended up putting the original one back in as I finally destroyed the new one (fortunately, that side wasn't bad, it was the driver's side that really needed it, and I was somehow able to get that one in).

Those things are the biggest PIA I think I've ever run into in working on Mustangs!

In the last attempt yesterday I bent the strip beyond repair.One down one to go!I'll check with my local parts man today & see if he can shed some light.He has the strips but I'm not sure if they are genuine or repo.The original strips were cactus,so I'll have to get them in somehow.I'll keep you posted.
