A little help please. Does anyone have a good alternate method of attaching the beaded window seal to the window trim piece? Trying to use staples is nearly impossible. Or at least extremely frustrating.

I used adhesive instead of staples. Simply following a suggestion made by others on this forum.

I would like to have seen the procedure for installing the staples from back then.

3M Black Weatherstrip Adhesive works perfect.....on the window seals, on the windlace rubber, on the door weatherstrip. Make sure it is correct the first time though.

I used BOTH....using the tiny screws like at the end and maybe one in the middle..and the adhesive. Maybe I just like a little overkill. lol

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
